Engineering, environment and design consultancy Sweco UK has been appointed by Perth & Kinross Council as the lead consultant on the £113 million Cross Tay Link Road project on the outskirts of Perth. The consultancy contract is valued at £3.5 million.

Phase two of four of the Perth Transport Futures Project will include the realignment of a section of the A9 trunk road, the provision of a new bridge across the River Tay and railway line, the creation of a new grade separated junction on the A9 and a new 6km link road connecting the A9 with the A93 and A94.

The project will create a third crossing over the River Tay, which will enable the local authority to fulfil the aims of its development plan, improve air quality within the city and reduce congestion.
