Inverness seeks contractors for £15m flood alleviation scheme

Scotland’s Highland council is seeking up to eight contractors to build the second phase of a £15m flood alleviation scheme for the river Ness in Inverness.

The scheme will comprise about 3km of reinforced concrete flood walls and embankments on both banks of the river, sheet piled foundations to control seepage and  drainage and pumping stations.

Reconstruction and reinstatement of streets will also be required and enabling works will be completed by third parties before the works start.

Works will extend through private business and residential land, busy industrial estates and commercially sensitive land.

At least five contractors are being sought to carry out the work up to a maximum of eight.

Expressions of interest must be received by 5 April.
