Procurement strategy agreed for £1.13bn Glasgow City Deal
May 12 2015Glasgow’s £1.13bn City Deal, paving the way for work to proceed on 20 ‘major infrastructure projects’ across the city region over the next 20 years.
This will see a number of supplier events organised to provide further information on how suppliers and small and medium size enterprises can get involved in projects ranging from the resuscitated Glasgow Airport Rail Link to further waterfront regeneration at Govan and along the Clyde corridor.
The greatest single outlay will be a near £200m investment in city centre public realm.
It is estimated that up to 15,000 people could be employed during the construction phase of the programme, intended to support a ‘strong growing core’ whilst exploiting opportunities across the wider region.
Councillor Gordon Matheson, chair of the Clyde Valley Cabinet, said: “Ensuring the procurement process is as simple and efficient as possible is great news for everyone as this will create even more jobs across the region as well as new opportunities for local companies.”
The City Deal will see the Scottish and UK governments each give the city £500m in grant funding with local authorities empowered to borrow a further £130m, which could unlock an additional £3.3bn of private capital.
