Four consortiums shortlisted to bid for £415M Scotland motorways scheme

Transport Scotland last week revealed its shortlist of companies invited to tender for the £415M M8, M73, M74 Motorway Improvements project.

Four consortiums have been selected to bid for the project – Scotia Roads Group; Scottish Roads Partnership; Connect Roads and Caledonia Roads Group.

Construction works include plans to upgrade the A8 Baillieston to Newhouse, completing the motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh, as well as improvements to the M74 Raith Interchange and the widening of key sections of the M8, M73 and M74.

“This project will see us complete the vital central belt motorway network and is good news for motorists, for the construction industry and for the Scottish economy,” said cabinet secretary for infrastructure and capital investment Alex Neil.

It is anticipated that construction will get underway late next year and be complete 2017.
