ESG Soil Mechanics wins Balmedie to Tipperty investigation contract

Transport Scotland has announced a step forward in its plans to dual an 8km section of the A90 between Balmedie and Tipperty with award of the ground investigation contract to ESG Soil Mechanics.

Transport minister Keith Brown said that the award of the half million poubnd contract will help bring the scheme up to the same level of readiness as the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route.

“The dualling scheme of the Balmedie-Tipperty section of the A90 will alleviate the bottleneck caused by the existing single carriageway resulting in improved and more reliable journey times and enhanced safety for road users,” said Brown.

“The £580,000 funding we have made available reinforces our commitment to improve both this and will allow our appointed contractors to begin the essential ground investigations work in the coming weeks to ensure the Balmedie-Tipperty scheme is up to the same level of readiness as the AWPR.”
