A CORK-BASED consulting engineering firm has secured a major infrastructural project north of Glasgow.
Fehily Timoney and Co has already begun the design of the 4.8km-long Dalry bypass over the River Garnock, a significant Transport Scotland project which is due for completion in December 2018.
The project involves the design of a new off-line bypass to the east of the town of Dalry in Ayrshire and associated junctions to connect to the existing A737 trunk road. It’s one of the largest roads projects the diverse Irish firm has ever undertaken in Scotland and a major boost to the firm’s 50 plus staff based at its Cork and Dublin offices and elsewhere.
The firm is based on the Pouladuff Road in Cork and has hailed the contract as 'a fantastic win' for the team.
Eamon Timoney, MD at Fehily Timoney, said the project boosts the firm's chances of securing other major projects in Scotland.
"We’ve also looking at a number of other significant Transport Scotland roads projects – including the A9," he said.
"It’s all in line with our corporate strategy of focusing our personnel and expertise in Northern Ireland and Scotland. This will continue as we wait for the Irish infrastructural market to recover."
