LTP looks North with Scottish framework 'milestone'


East Yorkshire-based Local Transport Projects (LTP) has won a place on the exclusive £968m Scotland Excel Engineering and Technical Consultancy Framework Contract.

The transport planning, traffic engineering and highway design practice is in line to provide transportation and traffic services to local authorities, the education sector, airports and other public bodies and service providers in Scotland.

LTP is also planning to open a new office in central Scotland on the back of the award. 


As the centre of procurement expertise for Scotland’s 32 local authorities, Scotland Excel has a £968m contract portfolio supporting the delivery of roads, transport, construction, environment, social care, corporate, education and ICT services.

LTP said it is the only specialist transportation small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) to be listed on the framework.

Director Andy Mayo said: ‘We’ve had many highlights here at LTP since we set up the business in 2004, but making it onto Scotland Excel is a genuine milestone for us. Being the only SME that specialises in transportation and highway engineering to be awarded a place on the framework is something we’re immensely proud to have achieved.

‘This will allow us to build on the good relationships we already have in Scotland with both public and private sector organisations and businesses, and we expect to support that by opening an office somewhere in central Scotland in the months ahead.’

In Scotland, LTP’s planning and traffic work has included a large residential housing development in Loudoun, Ayrshire, and a number of onshore wind turbines.

Other recent LTP projects are in London, Northern Ireland, Wales and Yorkshire.
