Sale of backer delays harbour highways


TWO FIRMS remain in the chase for a major works package on the £500 million Glasgow Harbour project.

Insiders say Morgan Est and Farrans are left in contention for the £20 million off-site highway works package after bids from Balfour Beatty, Sir Robert McAlpine and RJ McLeod fell by the wayside.

The rivals originally returned tenders in October but the award of the contract has been delayed by Peel Holdings' acquisition of Glasgow port operator, Clydeport, in November.

Clydeport is a joint backer of the Glasgow Harbour scheme.

The deal involves access works and new structures. Construction work on site is due to begin in May and will last two years.
