Galliford Try wins £48.5m flood contract

Galliford Try’s Scottish arm Morrison Construction has secured a £48.4 million flood alleviation contract, part of Moray Council’s £86m project to upgrade flood defences at Elgin, Northern Scotland

This project is part of the wider £160m Moray Flood Alleviation scheme combining the expertise of the Moray Council, Royal Haskoning, Morrison Construction and EC Harris to solve flooding issues in Moray.

The work will alleviate flooding in Elgin by recreating the flood plain and constructing flood defences.

The project involves creating a sustainable flood corridor along the River Lossie and relieving constrictions to water flow enabling high flows of water to be conveyed safely through the town through the use of a combination of embankments, walls and lowered floodplains.

Work is due to start on 4 April 2011, with completion due in 2015.
