Graham has disclosed sub-contract opportunities for local suppliers to help deliver and transform the bridge over Scotland’s River Clyde
Graham won the construction contract for the Clyde Waterfront and Renfrew Riverside project which is being delivered by Renfrewshire Council, jointly funded by the UK and Scottish Governments through the £1.13bn Glasgow City Region City Deal.
Construction comprises a twin-leaf swing bridge for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians, riverside walking and cycling routes and a new road connecting from the bridge into the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District Scotland (AMIDS) being developed next to Glasgow Airport.
Preparatory work on site starts this summer and all sub-contract and supplier work over £10,000 to complete the project will be publically advertised.
Fencing, scaffolding, temporary electrics and site accommodation, as well as cleaning and catering services, will enable the site to get up and running.
There will also be contracts for a range of equipment as work gets underway, including pumps, barges and generators and orders for aggregate, concrete and piling to complete construction of the new bridge connecting Renfrew with Clydebank and Yoker.
Economic estimates found around 700 jobs will be supported during the three-year construction period.
Getting involved in this project
UK Government minister for Scotland, Iain Stewart, said: “I encourage businesses to get involved with the supply chain opportunities for this ambitious project.
“The transformation of the waterfront will create jobs and attract further investment to the area, making it an even better place to work and live.
“The UK Government is investing more than £1.5bn into City Region and Growth Deals across Scotland, helping communities to build back better from the pandemic.”
