The construction of schools, hospitals, housing and transport projects supported 40,000 jobs over the past 12 months, according to Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon.

Ms Sturgeon visited the site of the planned Hunter Health Centre in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, which is due to be completed next summer.

NHS Lanarkshire chief executive Ian Ross said: "We're well on course to deliver these three magnificent community health centres in Wishaw, East Kilbride and Kilsyth by the summer of 2015."

Transport Scotland, meanwhile, announced that key roads would benefit from an extra £10 million in investment.
