The event, set for 23rd March 2016, will provide potential suppliers with the chance to learn more about the extent of the opportunity, the process for applications and timelines, and meet with key individuals within the organisation.

The Water of Leith Flood Prevention Scheme Phase 2 will involve the construction of flood defenses over a distance of approximately 1.2 km along Water of Leith at Murrayfield in Edinburgh.

Ancillary works include utility diversions, drainage, reinstatement of roads, hard standings, footpaths and the provision of hard and soft landscaping.
