Businesses Welcomed to ‘Meet the Buyer’

Businesses in Perth and Kinross are being welcomed to ‘meet the buyer’ to explore opportunities arising from the development of the Cross Tay Link Road.

Main contractor BAM Nuttall is organising a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event where their procurement team will outline what opportunities will be available in providing for the supply chain.

BAM Nuttall’s Project Director, William Diver, said: “We want to encourage local contractors and suppliers to come along to this event to see what opportunities there may be to get involved with the project as it progresses. We are very keen to get as much local input as possible to maximise economic benefits in the immediate area throughout the construction phase.”

The event is taking place at Perth Racecourse on Thursday 7 April from 1-5pm. Procurement staff from the company will be on hand to explain what work is likely to be available and how to bid.

The project involves the construction of a new three-span bridge over the River Tay and six kilometres of new road linking the A9 and the A93 to Blairgowrie and the A94 north of Scone. It also includes the realignment of two kilometres of dual carriageway on the A9 just north of Inveralmond Roundabout.

A spokesperson for the Perth and Kinross Council explained: “The new road will significantly reduce traffic congestion and related pollution in Perth city centre. It is the largest infrastructure project Perth and Kinross Council have ever undertaken.

“The type of contracts that will be tendered through the life of the project vary widely everything from site fencing to signs and lighting and concrete supply to piling work and cleaning contractors will be required.”
