The Cross Tay Link Road: Reducing Embodied Carbon Through Construction Project Design

In 2020/21 Perth and Kinross Council went out to tender for a works contract for the detailed design and construction of the Cross Tay Link Road (CTLR). This road will link the A9 over the highland mainline railway and River Tay to the A93 and A94 north of Scone. This will help to alleviate traffic congestion in the City Centre and Bridgend, creating capacity in the city’s road network that will enable a shift to greener modes of travel, and facilitate the sustainable economic development of Perth and the surrounding area.

The outcomes to be provided under this contract support Scotland’s Purpose ‘To focus on creating a more successful country with opportunities for all of Scotland to flourish through increased wellbeing, and sustainable and inclusive economic growth’, and contributes to our national outcomes:

  • Environment: We value, enjoy, protect and enhance our environment
  • Economy: We have a globally competitive, entrepreneurial, inclusive and sustainable economy
  • Communities: We live in communities that are inclusive, empowered, resilient and safe
