Transport Scotland is seeking to appoint a main contractor to undertake the replacement of the southern piled viaduct on the Kincardine Bridge.

Contractor sought to upgrade Kincardine Bridge viaduct

The works require the demolition of the existing southern piled viaduct of the A985 Kincardine Bridge to be replaced with a new five span structure.

Transport Scotland said the contract will require the design, provision and maintenance of a two directional temporary structure prior to the southern piled viaduct being demolished.

The project cannot be divided into lots due to its complexity, the transport body added.

It is the intention that the project will operate a mandatory project bank account (PBA), a ring-fenced account for payment of the contractor and its supply chain. The account will be opened by Scottish ministers with the Royal Bank of Scotland under the Scottish Government’s Banking Services Framework.

Works are expected to begin in winter 2022 and continue for two years.

Full details on the works and the application process can be found here.
