Fugro Seacore wins A9 ground investigation

Transport Scotland has announced that Fugro Seacore is its preferred bidder for ground investigation work on the Birnam to Glen Garry section of the A9 upgrade scheme.

Final award of the contract is subject to a mandatory standstill but Transport Scotland has said that expects the “vital ground investigation work” to get underway in August.

The £2.5M contract covers investigation work on a 51km section of the A9 and is scheduled to take three months to complete.

Scottish government infrastructure secretary Keith Brown said: “Dualling of the A9 has been talked about for decades, but I am proud that the Scottish Government is now delivering this much needed upgrade. This investment represents the most expensive transport project in Scotland’s history and presents some of the most challenging work ever undertaken.

“The ground investigations due to start next month between Birnam and Glen Garry will help inform the ongoing design work for the southern section of the Dualling programme. The ground investigation contract for the central section between Glen Garry and Dalraddy was awarded earlier this month [to Raeburn Drilling] and work is due to get underway shortly.”
