10th Perthshire Scouts Group

The Challenge

"Inspiring the next generation"

10th Perthshire Scout Group was established way back in 1909 and are still going strong welcoming as many as 250 girls and boys aged 6 to 19. The group is led by a hardworking team of male and female volunteers that aims to support young people in their physical, mental, and spiritual development so that they may play constructive roles in society.

The Activity

The group of 26 Scouts and leaders arrived at Stormontfield Office where they were given a presentation and safety briefing by Project Manager, John Slaven. They were then taken by bus which was procured through Docherty midland coaches and shown the piling works at the east pier where Site Engineer, Calum Flett gave an overview of the works. The scouts were then given the opportunity to sit in some plant supplied in Stormontfield car park by BAM's subcontractor James Penman Plant Hire Ltd to add to the experience.

The Result

The day gave the group an insight into the construction industry and a chance to see first-hand the work going into the Cross Tay Link Road Project with particular interest and questions around the Tay Crossing bridge. The day was a success for both BAM and 10th Perthshire Scouts Group.

The Cross Tay Link Road is Phase Two of the Perth Transport Futures project, which will deliver a more efficient and better-connected transport system and a cleaner city centre environment.
