A £10 million ancillary framework awarded by Transport Scotland is set to help support the delivery of the A9 dualling project.
Winners of the four-year framework, which will run alongside the main contracts for the upgrade works on the A9, include Morrison Construction, RJ Mcleod and Story Contracting.
The Scottish Government has recently given consent for four of the sections of the 35km upgrading to go ahead including Dalwhinnie to Crubenmore, Glen Garry to Dalwhinnie, Pitiochry to Killiecrankie and Tay Crossing to Baliniuig.
The multi-supplier framework is split into three lots covering minor works up to £250,000 and between £250,000 and £2 million.
Transport Scotland has said that it needed to appoint another contractor to support the main works. Talking about the project, Transport Secretary, Michael Matheson said: “This government remains committed to dualling the A9 between Perth and Inverness, one of the biggest transport infrastructure projects in Scotland’s history.”
