Civils workloads grew in Scotland in the third quarter of this year but fell in England, according to research.
The Construction Trade Survey found that a balance of 59% of firms north of the border had seen higher infrastructure workloads in the three months to 30 September 2015 than in the same period the prior year.
But the study, put together by economists at the Construction Products Association, also discovered that a balance of 14% of civils firms in England had seen declining output in that period.
Workloads in Wales were also down, with a negative balance of 32%.
Scottish and Welsh civils firms saw increases in orders in the third quarter of 2015, while English firms saw a decline.
Across the three countries, tender prices rose for infrastructure projects and so did costs.
