Balfour Beatty win £35million Perth Transport Futures Contract
Posted on: 26/08/2016

The international infrastructure group, Balfour Beatty, has been awarded a contract worth £35million by Perth and Kinross council to deliver the preliminary phase of the Perth Transport Futures Project. The project is aiming to enable the expansion of Perth through the construction of major new transport infrastructure.

Balfour Beatty will deliver a grade separated interchange between the A9 and the A85, as well as two new roads to connect the interchange to the A85, and a link road that will allow access to development lands west of the city. Balfour will also develop a roundabout, bridge, footbridge and culvert path to enhance the area.

The Perth Transport Futures Project aims to improve air quality through alleviating congestion, enhance current and future accessibility to the city and provide essential infrastructure to support economic growth.

Hector Macaulay, Balfour Beatty Regional Managing Director, Scotland, said: “We are really pleased to have been awarded this key contract and to be a part of the exciting development plans in Perth & Kinross. We have a vast wealth of experience in delivering significant highway infrastructure schemes across Scotland including locally on the A9, A90 and the M90."
