NCE stock roads

The four final bidders for the 4km A737 Dalry Bypass have been revealed.

They are Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering, Farrans Construction and Roadbridge, Interserve Construction and a joint venture of John Paul Construction and Portuguese firm Somague Engenharia.

The contract for the Dalry Bypass project is estimated to be worth between £34M and £38M. The work involves the construction of the new bypass and associated junctions to connect to the existing A737 Trunk Road.

Scotland’s minister for transport and the islands Humza Yousaf said: “This announcement marks another significant milestone for the Dalry Bypass. It ensures we remain on schedule to appoint a contractor early next year and for works to start on this critical infrastructure project by the end of March 2017.

“The new road will be a key driver in improving economic and employment opportunities in the area by providing better journey time reliability and enhancing connectivity. It will also improve safety by taking traffic away from unsuitable roads.”
