Glasgow City Council has opened up infrastructure contracts worth £242m to potential bidders. The council has said that the contracts will create and sustain jobs, and it expects to see a consequent boost to the city’s economy.
The construction, civil engineering and road infrastructure contracts include heritage restoration, lighting, temporary traffic management, landscaping and installation of playgrounds. The council is seeking five or more companies which can cover all construction, repair and maintenance of the projects.
The contracts are set to run over three years, and suppliers will be appointed on 1 May 2019. Successful applicants may also be used by North Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire councils as part of a procurement framework which exists between the local authorities.
Councillor Susan Aitken, leader of Glasgow City Council and convenor for inclusive economic growth, said: “These major contracts will bring jobs and opportunities for local people and organisations to work on projects that improve Glasgow’s economy in the short and long term.
“I would invite all those interested in bidding for these contracts to visit the procurement website.”
