Status

Capita has acted as Lenders’ Technical Adviser from the start of the tender stage, through construction and now during the operations phase. The M8 M73 M74 Motorway Improvements PPP consists of 10km of new M8 motorway between Baillieston and Newhouse, 10km of new all-purpose roads, improvement of the M74 / A725 Junction at Raith and widening of lengths of the existing M8, M73 and M74 motorways.

Construction logistics were complicated with multi-phasing of work and associated traffic management schemes to keep the existing network operational. The new motorway opened to traffic in 2017 and the concession is for 30 years.
