S5W-13078: Graham Simpson (Central Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 29 November 2017

To ask the Scottish Government by what date the outstanding works on the A8/M8/M74 will be completed.

Answered by: Keith Brown 21 December 2017

The new motorway opened to traffic on 1 June 2017. Finishing works are currently underway and the contractor has confirmed his intention to complete these works by April 2018. This is a standard approach for projects of this nature. As this project was procured under the NPD contract form, the contractor will not receive the full payment for the project until all outstanding works are complete.
