In August 2014, Amey’s Consulting, Rail and Strategic Highways division was contracted by Transport Scotland to maintain and improve the motorways and trunk roads in South East Scotland.
The Scottish Trunk Roads Unit South East (STRU SE) contract covers more than 550 miles of road through Central Scotland, the Lothians and Scottish Borders, including Edinburgh’s city bypass and a long stretch of the M8 motorway which connects Glasgow and the country’s capital.
Amey is responsible for the design and delivery of major road maintenance work, as well as inspections to ensure the routes remain safe and well maintained.
Amey carries out salting and snow clearing as well as gully cleaning and the repair of motorway lighting and traffic signals.
Since 2012 Amey has delivered the Traffic Scotland Operations and Infrastructure contract from the flagship National Control Centre, looking after roadside technology across the whole of the country including motorway gantries and roadside telephones.
