WJ Group and BEAR Scotland have extended their longstanding relationship by confirming a strategic partnership on the Scottish Trunk Road Network Management Contract for the South East Unit.

The partnership covers the delivery of all road marking services, including permanent and temporary markings, high friction surfacing and demarcation solutions.

Transport Scotland appointed BEAR Scotland as the Operating Company for this new contract, which will last until at least 2028, with the possibility of a further extension.

This extends BEAR Scotland’s reach as it currently has responsibility for trunk roads in the North East and North West of Scotland.

The South East Region covers approximately 314 miles of some of the busiest sections of road in Scotland, from the central belt through to the Scottish Borders.

This Unit includes the historic Forth Road Bridge and the recently completed Queensferry Crossing, which were originally delivered as an individual contract.

This extended partnership means that WJ and BEAR Scotland are now working together on over 1500 miles of Scotland’s trunk road network.

BEAR Scotland Commercial Director Mark Godsell said: “WJ have been a great asset on both our North West and North East contracts with their exceptional delivery capabilities and keen focus on innovation.

“They have helped us implement new ideas and products on to the Scottish network. We look forward to continuing this success in the South East as we work together to raise standards and a provide a safer road network for all road users across Scotland.”

WJ Scotland Operations Manager Brian Smith added: “It’s fantastic to be working with BEAR Scotland in the South East Unit. We’ve created a great relationship working with them in the North and we know they have a real focus on continual improvement to ensure an exceptional service which really prioritises the customer.

“This approach mirrors our own and it has helped us establish synergies over many years and we know we can support their objectives on the south east network.”
