To ask the Scottish Government what the (a) total and (b) final monthly unitary charge payment will be to Aberdeen Roads Ltd for the final phase of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route (AWPR), including the new Don Bridge, after it has been handed over to Transport Scotland.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 20 December 2018
Payments for phases of this project are subject to a number of factors and therefore payment amounts can vary. Once a payment has been certified, as part of the governance arrangement for the AWPR/B-T contract, Aberdeen City Council administers payments to Aberdeen Roads Limited (ARL) each month. The payments Transport Scotland makes to Aberdeen City Council are published in monthly expenditure reports and are available at: https://www.transport.gov.scot/about/expenditure/
The final payment will be after the concession period which runs until 13 November 2047.
