A9 Crubenmore to Kincraig

A9 Crubenmore to Kincraig is one of the 12 schemes that form the Scottish Government’s £3 billion A9 Dualling between Perth and Inverness. The 18.4km scheme is currently being designed by CH2MHill/Fairhurst Joint Venture on behalf of Transport Scotland with the intention of developing route options and progressing the scheme through the statutory process. 

In Preparation

Crubenmore to Kincraig

More details of this process can be found on:

Engagement with directly affected communities and businesses is at the heart of Transport Scotland’s projects and is a vital part of our work as we develop our ambitious plans to dual the A9 between Perth and Inverness. These engagement events regularly take place along the route and details can be found on the Community engagement A9 and You web page.

Design Challenges

Following the initial work undertaken by the Preliminary Engineering Services Commission a DMRB Stage 1 report was produced for the whole of the A9 corridor and for this particular section the following must be considered as part of the ongoing design process:

  • This section is low lying, passing the towns of Newtonmore and Kingussie, which will require junction provision, and is constrained by the highly sensitive Insh Marshes and River Spey.
  • The existing Crubenmore junction located on the existing dual carriageway will be considered as part of this Project.
  • Widening of the 140m, 7-span structure over the River Spey and general road widening north of the structure will present environmental and construction issues.
  • Consideration will need to be given to the river flood plain.
  • 13 at-grade Non-Motorised User (NMU) crossing points have been identified within this section which may result in the need to construct alternative routes and/or structures to avoid severance.


Indicative Route Option Plan

As part of the May 2014 public exhibitions Transport Scotland have presented plans detailing indicative route options for this section of the A9 dualling.
