Amey secures £400m Transport Scotland contract

AMEY has secured a £400 million contract from Transport Scotland to maintain and improve the motorways and trunk roads across the south west of Scotland.

Amey will deliver engineering design and operational delivery services for more than 600 kilometres of road. From Greenock to Dumfries, and out to Stranraer, Amey teams will be providing vital services on key routes such as the A75, A76 and A77, as well as on parts of the M8 and M74 around Glasgow, focused on delivering reliable journey times and a high level of customer care for the people and businesses that use these roads every day.

The firm will also be responsible for cyclical maintenance, motorway lighting, traffic signals, barrier repairs, winter maintenance and the trunk road incident support service. The contract will run for a minimum of eight years, with an optional extension of up to four years which would bring the total to £690 million.

Amanda Fisher, chief executive of Amey, said, “Amey is extremely proud of its record of delivery in Scotland, and our dedicated engineers and suppliers welcome this opportunity to continue working with Transport Scotland to support local growth, economic development and a more sustainable service across the South West region.”
