Argyll and Bute Council and Breedon Aggregates Scotland Ltd have entered into a unique partnership arrangement to undertake machine patching, surface dressing, resurfacing and overlay works on Islay, Mull and Kintyre.  The partnership has created an opportunity to innovate through early contractor involvement, maximising the use of shared resources and technical expertise and joint resolution of challenges.

In this tough economic climate of restricted budgets and rising costs, the Contract has, during its first year, successfully delivered high quality, sustainable road schemes on programme and achieved savings of £90,000 (8.5% of target cost).  The partnership has also contributed to the delivery of the Council’s Key Local Outcomes.
