Amey lands £90M Scottish highways maintenance deal

Transport Scotland has awarded Amey a six-year contract to maintain and improve the motorways and trunk roads in South East Scotland.

The commission, which is valued at over £90M, is subject to up to two one-year extensions and will see Amey deliver engineering design and operational delivery services for more than 880km of road.

Under the Scottish Trunk Roads Unit South East (STRU SE) contract Amey will be responsible for managing and maintaining routes through Central Scotland, the Lothians and Scottish Borders, including Edinburgh’s city bypass and a long stretch of the M8 motorway which connects Glasgow and the country’s capital.

Amey said its “robust” tender submission will provide a cost effective service for Transport Scotland and that it was deemed to align well with Scottish Government policy and be delivered by experienced personnel.

The contract scope includes the design and delivery of major road and bridge maintenance work, as well as inspections to ensure the routes remain safe and well maintained.  Amey will also carry out salting and snow clearing as well as gully cleaning and the repair of motorway lighting and traffic signals.
