Aberdeen bypass completion pushed back to December


November 09, 2018 – Galliford Try is having to spend a further £20m more than it had planned to finish construction of the delayed Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route for Transport Scotland.

In a trading update to shareholders, Galliford Try said that it expects to complete the final section of AWPR in December, including the bridge over the River Don. It was supposed to finish in spring 2017.

“Increased complexity and weather delays in implementing repairs to the bridge,” had recently set the project back, the company said.

“As a result of higher than anticipated direct costs, and the further delay to completion, our estimate of the final costs to complete the contract has increased by approximately £20m.”

However, it is pursuing a “significant” claim against the client on the project, which is the subject of “constructive discussions”.
