£2.5bn Scottish pipeline updated
The plans include a bundled £450m Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route and A90 Balmedie to Tipperty upgrade, which currently has no scheduled tender date, although it follows on from the triple-motorway project that was launched in March.
Four hospitals, comprising the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Edinburgh, the Ayrshire and Arran acute mental health and North Ayrshire community hospital, the Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary and the Balfour hospital in Orkney are also in the pipeline. Together with a national centre for Scotland’s Blood Transfusion Service, the total acute healthcare investment will be around £500m.
The pipeline also references around £250m-worth of primary care and partnership projects through the Hub initiative, which will be delivered over the next three years.
Meanwhile three colleges at a combined value of £300m – based in Glasgow, Inverness and Kilmarnock – are also due to see construction work begin next year.
The document also lists the three phases of school investment, worth a combined £530m.
