Naylor ducting in Dundee

The £1 billion transformation of Dundee city waterfront, which encompasses 240 hectares of development land stretching 8km along the River Tay, is a strategic, focussed and forward-looking 30 year project (2001-2031) that is propelling the city to international acclaim. The delivery of complex road and infrastructure works which is being undertaken by contractor Sir Robert McAlpine forms a key element of the Central Waterfront masterplan, involving the reconfiguration of the main city centre roundabout to accommodate the demolition and reconstruction over the East Coast Main Line of the Marketgait and Tay Station bridges. Ducting manufactured by the Fife factory of Naylor Drainage, based in Methil has been extensively used on the scheme in the provision of both utilities and communications cabling including for street lighting and traffic signals. Naylor Chief Executive Edward Naylor commented “our local manufacturing operations have not only allowed us to offer excellent service to the site but also reduce the carbon footprint of construction activities, with literally thousands of miles of vehicle transport being avoided”
