Client: Renfrewshire Council
Location: Renfrewshire, Scotland
The £1.13bn Glasgow City Region City Deal is an agreement between the UK Government, the Scottish Government and the 8 local authorities across the Glasgow City Region. Sweco has been appointed to provide engineering advice for two of Renfrewshire Council’s City Deal projects: Glasgow Airport Investment Area and Clyde Waterfront & Renfrew Riverside. These projects aim to regenerate the areas through the delivery of transport infrastructure. Sweco is using multi-disciplinary teams covering skills from roads, structures, transport planning, geotechnical, environment, landscape and flood risk assessment.
Sweco’s transport planning input includes providing technical assurance on all traffic and transportation modelling and appraisal matters to ensure compliance of outputs with overall project requirements ranging from business case inputs to operational assessments of the existing and proposed transport networks. We have advised on these matters throughout the options development and appraisal process.
We are also providing support to the Council with stakeholder and public consultation and in delivering the Community Benefits Plan aimed at benefitting the Renfrewshire community by supporting education, employment, training and advice opportunities.
