INFRASTRUCTURE firm Balfour Beatty yesterday said that, along with peers Carillion and Galliford Try, it had been selected as preferred bidder for a £745m road contract near Aberdeen.

The project includes the design and construction of 46km of new dual carriageway and a further 12km of upgraded existing dual carriageway, alongside side roads, access tracks and bridges.

The three firms will invest £20m each. Work is expected to start later this year and be completed in spring 2018.
