Amey fails to renew contract after BEAR Scotland wins motorway maintenance tender
Amey has lost the contract to maintain motorways in south east Scotland to consortium BEAR Scotland.
Amey had held the contract for the past five years but lost out in the latest tender.
BEAR Scotland, a consortium of Jacobs Babtie, Ennstone and the Ringway Group, will now maintain the 472km trunk road and motorway network as part of the five-seven year contract, which is worth up to £81m.
Last year Amey beat BEAR Scotland, a consortium of Jacobs Babtie, Ennstone and the Ringway Group, for the north west roads maintenance contract.
The third contract to manage Scotland’s north east trunk roads has also been put out to tender with the contract expected to start next Spring. Current holders BEAR Scotland is up against Amey and Scotland Transerv, a joint venture between Balfour Beatty and Mouchel Parkman.
