Four fight for £50M dualling deal

Four teams are competing for the £50M contract to deliver the first stage of Scotland’s mammoth A9 dualling programme.

A BAM Nuttall/John Sisk joint venture made the shortlist for the 8km Kincraig-to-Dalraddy upgrade project.

Farrans Construction/Roadbridge will also tender for the package, which was put to market ahead of schedule this summer.

Wills Bros/John Paul Construction made the cut for the work, which represents the first of 12 dualling projects under the £3bn programme.

Morrison Construction completes the shortlist for the contract, which is expected to be awarded next summer.

Transport minister Keith Brown said: “[This] announcement is a reflection of the Scottish government’s ambitious programme of investment and commitment to dual the A9 from Perth to Inverness by 2025 and I welcome the interest shown by construction companies who are keen to secure the contract.

“Work to progress the dualling of the A9 is gathering momentum as we move another step closer to appointing the contractor, who we expect to put the first spade in the ground next summer, some six months earlier than originally planned.”

Jacobs was awarded the £60M design contract for the Kincraig to Dalraddy contract in August.
