Maybole Bypass Construction Work out for Tender


Transport Scotland has released a tender for the £30 million project to construct the Maybole bypass. The organisation is looking for bidders that will contracted to carry out the construction work of approximately 5.2 km of the new bypass and any associated junctions.

When the planned bypass has been completed the road network in the nearby area will be separated into local and long distance routes. By creating this strategic link and separating the long distance travellers from local drivers will cut down on the levels of congestion experienced in the area. Key ports near the proposed bypass like Stranraer and Cairnryan will be affected by the work as it is thought that the construction work will cut journey times for long distance road users.

This new development project offers construction companies in Scotland an amazing opportunity to work on a high profile project. This extensive alteration work will offer work to a wide range of companies and will also improve the traffic in that area.

Work to improve the A9 at Berriedale Braes in the north of Scotland is part of the Scottish Government’s commitment to improve the transport network across the country. With the announcement of this most recent tender, the total value of the contracts that have been awarded and advertised over the past few months is around £174 million. This demonstrates a strong commitment to cut journey times and emissions caused by the congestion as well as carry out general improvements across the country.

Those who live in the Maybole community will be given relief from the built up traffic with the creation of the Maybole Bypass, boosting the local community as well as removing the congestion from the local roads caused by vehicles covering longer distances.

It is thought that the construction work on the Maybole Bypass will start at some point next year.
