Development of the Aberdeen bypass project has seen contracts worth more than £350 million handed out to Scottish construction businesses.
The value of the sub-contracts awarded for the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route and Balmedie-Tipperty dualling works has been unveiled by Infrastructure Secretary Keith Brown, pictured.
The firms have played their part in a range of key stages of the overall scheme, from drainage works to equipment hire as well as supplying steel reinforcement and concrete.
Mr Brown said the investment was a clear example of how the £745m development was “stimulating” the North-east’s economy.
“These excellent opportunities provide companies of all sizes to be part of the longest roads construction project currently under way in the UK,” he said.
The project is expected to bring £6 billion into the region’s economy and create 14,000 jobs, on top of 1,500 roles which have already opened up.
Transport Scotland has confirmed the development is on schedule and is due to open next year.
