Dawson WAM wins Campbeltown contract

Argyll and Bute Council has appointed Dawson WAM as the Principal Contractor for the Campbeltown Flood Protection Scheme (FPS).

This is part of the £15.215 million work that will see a range of improvement works carried out to reduce the risk of flooding in the town.

As well as the overall improvements to Campbeltown’s flood resilience, a number of roads will also benefit from flood protection and road surface reconstruction as a result.

These include: Witchburn Road, Tomaig Road, Meadowburn Place, Smith Drive, Bengullion Road, Burnside Square, Burnside Street, Glebe Street, Dell Road, Argyll Street, Castlehill and Lorne Street.

Some homes and businesses will also benefit from Property Flood Resilience (PFR) to improve the standard of protection. 

The scheme is 80% funded by the Scottish Government and 20% funded by Argyll and Bute Council.
