Cross Tay project forges partnership with Perthshire Women’s Aid
The Cross Tay Link Road (CTLR) team have struck up a partnership with Perthshire Women’s Aid.
The team will be supporting the charity which helps Perthshire women, children and young people, who are experiencing, or have experienced domestic abuse. This partnership will be delivered through the CTLR community benefits programme which is tied to the main construction of the project.
The charity will now be working with BAM to understand how the team may be able to help enhance the services they offer.
Project main contractor BAM Nuttall has committed to delivering a range of community benefits to groups across the area that will improve the environment, create educational or employment opportunities and support cultural improvement projects.
BAM Nuttall’s Communications and Stakeholder Engagement Manager, Innes Mackintosh said: ‘We’re delighted to be working with Perthshire Women’s Aid to help them improve the invaluable services they offer to local vulnerable people.’
The Cross Tay Link Road project involves the construction of a new 3-span bridge over the River Tay and six kilometres of new road linking the A9 and the A93 to Blairgowrie and the A94 north of Scone. It also includes the realignment of two kilometres of dual carriageway on the A9 just north of Inveralmond Roundabout.
The new road will significantly reduce traffic congestion and related pollution in Perth City centre while opening up active travel opportunities and will give access to areas around the city for sustainable development.
The charity’s Deputy Manager, Cilla Taylor said: The range of skills that a company as large as BAM have to offer opens up exciting opportunities for us. I’m looking forward to working with BAM to help develop and enhance the services we deliver to the community.
Perthshire Women’s Aid have moved into new office and can now be found at Royal British House, Leonard Street, Perth PH2 8HA
