To ask the Scottish Government what the expected completion date is for the Haudagain Improvement project.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 21 November 2018
The main construction contract for the A90/A96 Haudagain Improvement Project is expected to be awarded in December 2018 enabling work to commence shortly after. It is expected that the project will open to traffic in 2021 which will be three months later than originally estimated. This slight delay resulted from a combination of factors including difficulties encountered during ground investigation work. Information from these investigations is essential to allow contractor to price and programme the job correctly.
