S5W-06203: Ross Thomson (North East Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 16 January 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what information it has on the standard of accommodation for workers employed on the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route project.

Answered by: Keith Brown 26 January 2017

Aberdeen Roads Limited (ARL), the project contractor, has advised that the vast majority of the workforce has privately procured their own accommodation.

ARL has also provided a small purpose built site-based accommodation area at Craibstone. This is a private arrangement between the workers and the contractor and is common on construction sites in areas where there is pressure on local accommodation. The contractor ensures that the accommodation area is maintained to the relevant standards.
