Amey/Arup JV wins £50M roads deal

NCE stock roads

An Amey/Arup joint venture has been named preferred bidder for a £50M roads project in north east Scotland.

Transport Scotland said the team would be awarded the contract – subject to a standstill period – to carry out route option assessment and detailed design work for the dualling of the 42km eastern section of the A96 between Huntly and Aberdeen.

The shortlisted bidders were Aecom, an Amey/Arup JV, an Atkins/WSP JV, and Jacobs.

Scottish cabinet secretary for the economy Keith Brown said the government was committed to dualling the full A96 from Inverness to Aberdeen by 2030.

“This major design contract marks a further milestone towards the dualling of the A96 with all the investment and improvements that it will bring to local economies right across the north of Scotland,” he said.

“The fact that four tenderers, including joint ventures, competed for this major contract is evidence of the interest in the market engendered by the infrastructure improvements this government is delivering across the country including in the north.”
