Ferrovial Agroman Lagan JV (for Scottish Roads Partnership)

This £500m project will improve the safety and reliability of journeys between Glasgow and Edinburgh, and provide a north / south link to the UK.

RPS is working for Ferrovial Agroman Lagan JV responsible for the design, construction, commissioning, operation and maintenance of the project on behalf of the Scottish Roads Partnership. A genuine, integrated team approach has been adopted to cover the whole asset lifecycle.

RPS has provided a value engineered acoustic design service on the project. This includes road traffic noise modelling for multi-tier, free flow junctions and other complex intersections. Proposed mitigation measures include natural screening, low road noise surfaces, earthen berms and timber noise barriers. Using an iterative design process a cost effective acoustic design has been developed. The project is currently at construction stage.
