Waterman was re-appointed in 2021 for Transport Scotland’s trunk road auditing and monitoring package. This is seeing our team working alongside Turner & Townsend, PwC and WSP to provide an auditing and monitoring service relating to the technical, financial and commercial management of the maintenance and improvement of the Scottish Trunk Road Network. The appointment will run for six years with options to extend up to a maximum of a further four years.
The multidisciplinary team was established as the Performance Audit Group (PAG) to carry out detailed audit and monitoring activities of operations and maintenance contractors for the Scottish Trunk Road Network. The latest appointment expands PAG’s existing remit to cover the Design-Build-Finance-Operate contract for the M8/M73/M74 along with the Traffic Scotland Operations and Infrastructure Services Contract.
The Scottish Trunk Road Network spans the country, linking rural communities and ferry ports with urban centres as well as providing cross-border access to the south. It forms part of a transport framework that underpins the economic and social growth of the nation.
