A CH2M HILL subsidiary will perform environmental studies on a proposed dual carriageway project in Scotland under a government contract of an undisclosed amount.
Transport Scotland’s dualling program seeks to alleviate traffic congestion along the A9 road between the cities of Aberdeen and Inverness, CH2M HILL said Thursday.
Halcrow will undertake assessments and draft guidelines aimed at minimizing the project’s impact on the environment, CH2M HILL says.
Donald Bell, Halcrow client manager, said the subsidiary intends to use its experience in flood risk, ecology, transport, landscape and spatial data management for the studies.
The subsidiary will also provide Transport Scotland guidance and support, aiming to ensure the project complies with habitat conservation laws.
