S5W-13260: Graham Simpson (Central Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 8 December 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what it is doing to repair potholes that have appeared on the newly-opened section of the M73, and how much this will cost.

Answered by: Keith Brown 21 December 2017

Under the Non-Profit Distributing (NPD) contract for the project, SRP, the project contractor, is responsible for the maintenance of the M8 M73 M74 Motorway Improvements project for a period of 30 years. Consequently the obligation to undertake repairs such as this rests with SRP. These repairs will have no effect upon the cost of the project to the public purse.
