Civil engineering contractor Roadbridge UK has been awarded a contract to construct a GBP30 million quayside expansion supporting the energy and cruise industries, at the Port of Cromarty Firth, in Scotland.

Work started in January, the project will comprise construction of a 218 m-long quayside with steel piles, construction of a new retaining wall, and nine acres of land reclamation, slated for completion in the second quarter of 2020.

“This is a hugely complex job with a very tight schedule,” said port CEO Bob Buskie.

“[Roadbridge] won this contract against very stiff competition from six other leading national and international contractors. Their team is totally committed to ensuring the Port’s communities benefit from this build in line with our own Trust Port philosophy.

“We look forward to working with Roadbridge on this build to ensure it is ready for the Moray East windfarm project in 2020.”
