The scheme will extend of the existing park and ride facility adjacent to the busy Broxden roundabout, where the M90 meets the A9 to the south west of the city. The area is situated on green fields to the east of the existing car park.
After initial site clearance, the bulk earthworks for the new platform include the off site disposal of 35,000m of surplus inert material.
Work will include traditional drainage and roadworks to form the car park extension, together with the installation of street lighting, road marking, landscaping and other finishes.
The 20 week project starts on site this month. Atkins is engineer on the scheme.
