CECA Scotland welcomes Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route decision

Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) Scotland welcomes the decision to throw out a legal challenge to the vital Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR) project.

The £350m bypass, which was originally given the go-ahead by the Scottish Government in 2009, is considered to be of major strategic importance to Scotland.

Commenting, CECA Scotland Chief Executive Alan Watt said: “CECA Scotland welcomes this decision as another step in the right direction towards the long overdue construction of the AWPR.

“Our only regret is that this essential project has been delayed as much as it has, given its importance. CECA Scotland hopes that future infrastructure projects will have a smoother transition through to delivery, while still allowing all stakeholders to have their say.
“The AWPR has been subject to a Public Inquiry and enjoys the overwhelming support of the wider community.

It is essential that its construction now proceeds without further delay, as it will create a vital boost to both jobs and growth in the Scottish economy.”
