A82 Pulpit Rock honoured at Saltire Society Civil Engineering Awards

The A82 Pulpit Rock junction improvement has won the Infrastructure Award at this years Saltire Society Civil Engineering Awards. The scheme included construction of a new viaduct running parallel with Loch Lomond, widening of the existing carriageway to the north and introduction of a two-lane carriageway.

Working in collaboration with McLaughlin and Harvey and Transport Scotland, Tony Gee produced an environmentally sensitive design of the box girder viaduct with associated highway and geotechnical works. Our design services also included consultation with the National Park authorities and other key stakeholders.

The award was presented to the project team at a ceremony held in The National Museum of Scotland. The Judges commented that ‘the solution allowed the construction to progress within the very restricted site by significantly reducing road closures from that originally anticipated and reducing disruption of traffic to a minimum, a huge part of the success of the project.’
