Scottish councils extend working relationship with Mouchel

Three councils in Scotland have awarded Mouchel’s highways design and management team a two-year extension to its roads, transportation and environmental-related professional services contract, with the potential to extend for a further two years.

The contract, worth £1.2m, will see Mouchel partner with Stirling, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire councils to support and extend the councils’ in-house capabilities, giving them flexibility to ensure their business needs are met. This will use a wide range of Mouchel’s skills, including highways design and maintenance, traffic and transport design, environmental consultancy, flooding and landscape expertise, and geotechnical services.

Calum Galloway, technical director, Highways Design & Management, Mouchel, said: “This is the third consecutive time Mouchel has won this contract with Stirling, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire councils, and is a true testament to the valuable working relationships we’ve forged with the councils, and the collaborative nature of Mouchel.

“The commission will use our skills across the business, and complements our major scheme delivery with Transport Scotland and Transport Northern Ireland.”

Projects delivered in collaboration with the councils since 2008 as part of the term commission have included: Allan Water Bridge deck replacement, Dunblane Station improvements, flood prevention or alleviation schemes at Aberfoyle, Callander and Bridge of Allan, confined spaces bridge inspections, road safety audits and ground investigations as well as the successful Station Road, Polmont Junction improvements and M9 junction 6 signalling projects.
