Preparing for the main works

August 2014 – December 2014

A pre-start works agreement enabled the preferred bidder to undertake further design work and to begin works including environmental surveys and ground investigations ahead of the main works contract.

October 2012 – August 2014

Several major advance works were undertaken in this period, including archaeological surveys, ground investigations and hydrological and hydrogeological monitoring.

A range of environmental mitigation measures were also completed. This involved the creation of new habitats for a wide range of protected species, including water voles, badgers, bats, red squirrels and otters.

2006 – September 2012

In addition to the statutory process and design development work, one of the largest environmental and ecological surveys in Scottish development history was undertaken.
