Turner & Townsend to provide audit and monitoring service for Scottish Trunk Road Network


TRANSPORT Scotland has reappointed Turner & Townsend, in collaboration with PwC, Waterman and WSP, to provide the audit and monitoring service for the Scottish Trunk Road Network.

The appointment is for six years with options to extend up to a maximum of a further four years. The contract is in relation to the technical, financial, and commercial management of the maintenance and improvement of the network.

The multi-disciplinary team was established as the Performance Audit Group (PAG) to carry out audit and monitoring activities of Operations & Maintenance (O&M) contractors for the Scottish Trunk Road Network. The latest appointment expands PAG’s existing remit to cover the Design-Build-Finance-Operate (DBFO) contract for the M8/M73/M74 along with the Traffic Scotland Operations and Infrastructure Services Contract (TSOIS).

Steve Jackson, director, Turner & Townsend, said, “The Scottish Trunk Road Network makes a significant contribution to Scotland’s economy by keeping its people and places connected. It requires a true partnership approach with Transport Scotland and the operating companies to maintain standards along these vital routes. We are delighted to lead the PAG team which brings together the combined expertise of Turner & Townsend, PwC, Waterman and WSP.”
