Amey Arup JV wins A96 dualling project

Transport Scotland has chosen Amey Arup Joint Venture for a £50m contract to plan and design a major highway upgrade near Aberdeen.

Subject to the mandatory standstill period, Amey Arup Joint Venture will start work on route option assessment and detailed design for dualling the 26-mile eastern section of the A96 between east of Huntly and Aberdeen.

Keith Brown, Scotland’s cabinet secretary with the transport brief, said: “We are fully committed to dualling the A96, some 86 miles of upgraded road between Inverness and 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 added: “We are at the same time progressing the design work for the Inverness to Nairn (including Nairn Bypass) and also the western section of the route between Hardmuir and Fochabers, having recently let locals and road users see and comment on the options being taken forward for the western section with a view to identifying a preferred route option next year.”
