Morrison Construction boss named Forth Replacement Crossing project director
Former chief engineer of Morrison Construction, Michael Martin, has been named as project director of Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors (FCBC), the consortium building the £1.4 billion Queensferry Crossing.
A member of the board of the FCBC consortium, Martin takes over from Hochtief’s Carlo Germani, who announced last month he was leaving the position after three-and-a-half years.
Transport Scotland, which is managing the project on behalf of the Scottish Government, praised the “hugely significant” contribution of Germani and welcomed his successor.
A Transport Scotland spokesman said: “Transport Scotland has accepted the proposal to appoint Michael Martin as the new Project Director for Forth Crossing Bridge Constructors on the Forth Replacement Crossing project. This follows Carlo Germani’s decision to leave his position as Project Director.
“After three and a half years Carlo Germani has made a hugely significant contribution to the successful delivery of the project to date. We look forward to working closely with his successor Michael Martin as we move into the final two years of construction. The project remains on schedule and under budget.”
