1. Figures for spend per route include structural maintenance spend, minor improvements, route maintenance, strategic road safety, bridges and structures and winter service

2. 3. PFI payments and Other payments (e.g. safety camera partnership, Forth Estuary Transport Authority/Tay Road Bridge Joint Board and Traffic Scotland service) are not route specific but are included for completeness

We are committed to the largest road investment programme that Scotland has ever seen. By the end of this financial year (2016-17), we will have spent over £8 billion on our Motorways and Trunk Road Network since 2007, to ensure the strategic road network is safe, available for use, efficient, well maintained and allows effective movement of people, goods and services around and to and from Scotland.

Ongoing schemes

Since 2007, the Scottish Government has invested in a number of major roads projects, including:

Project

Investment

Forth Replacement Crossing

£1.325 to £1.35 billion

Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route/Balmedie-Tipperty

£745 million

M8 M73 M74 Motorway Improvements Project

£500 million

A9 Dualling

£3 billion

A96 Dualling

£3 billion

A737 Dalry Bypass

£34 – 38 million

In addition, the Scottish Government continues to progress the design and development of a number of schemes including the A90/A937 Laurencekirk Junction Improvement and the A90/A96 Haudagain Junction Improvement.

A breakdown by road and local authority area is not possible for incomplete schemes as some of the investments are of a national nature (e.g. Forth Replacement Crossing) and others span a number of local authority areas.

However, analysis of spend by year, since 2007-08 can be seen in the following table:
