Transport Scotland is looking for contractors to take on works under its M8/M73/M74 Motorway Improvements project.
In support of this, the agency is hosting an industry day to inform contractors about the opportunities on offer.
The project involves upgrading the A8 Baillieston to Newhouse road, completing the motorway between Glasgow and Edinburgh, and improving the Raith Interchange and widening key sections of the M8, M73 and M74.
Transport minister Keith Brown, who addressed delegates at the industry day, expects the works to support around 900 construction jobs.
"With construction costs of £415m at today's prices, the successful contractor will be required to deliver on-the-job training for apprentices and local employment opportunities, further boosting the nation's economy under a community benefit clause," he added.
Procurement for the project starts on March 30th with the publication of the OJEU notice.
Scottish cabinet secretary Alex Neil recently claimed that there are 36 "shovel ready" projects in Scotland awaiting funding from Westminster to get started.
