Major capital projects progress update
The following information relates to projects with a capital value of £5 million or more which are at the Outline Business Case (or equivalent) approved stage or beyond.
The information mainly comprise projects included at Annex D of the Scottish
Government's Infrastructure Investment Plan published in February 2021 and ongoing projects included within previous project progress updates.
The majority of information reports the position as at 30 September 2022. If, however there has been a significant change in the status of any project between then and end of October 2022, the accompanying information relating to that project has been updated.
All projects are capital grant funded unless otherwise stated.
As previously flagged in the March 2022 update, the progress of some projects within our reporting has been subject to delays. This is due to the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and issues around labour shortages, supply chains and the availability of construction materials. These related delays have already resulted in an increase in cost for projects and it is likely to result in further additional costs that are still being worked through. In addition to this, we have continued to see significant cost inflation on a range of construction materials driven more recently in part by the conflict in Ukraine. All planned dates and costs therefore are best estimates and may subsequently be subject to further impact of these ongoing situations.
There is a problem
