Question ref. S6W-09444
Asked by: Kenneth Gibson, Cunninghame North, Scottish National Party
Date lodged: 29 June 2022


To ask the Scottish Government when plans for the A737 Improvements at Beith will be approved in order for the project to move to the procurement stage; when the project is expected to go out to tender, and, in line with the details set out in its Infrastructure Investment Plan 2021-2022 to 2025-2026, whether (a) construction is expected to start onsite by 30 January 2023 and (b) the roundabout, flyover and road will be operational by 29 July 2024.

Current status: Answered by Jenny Gilruth on 27 July 2022


Transport Scotland is currently progressing through the necessary governance procedures and whilst the Scottish Government remains committed to taking the project forward, procurement will commence when sufficient funding is available to support its construction.

It is standard practice for projects of this scale and nature to follow necessary and robust governance approval procedures and I refer the member to the letter issued by Transport Scotland dated 17 November 2021 confirming details of these procedures.
