A9 Dalwhinnie to Crubenmore

A9 Dalwhinnie to Crubenmore is one of the 11 schemes that form the Scottish Government’s £3 billion A9 Dualling between Perth and Inverness. The 11km 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

The A9 near Dalwhinnie

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 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 Project has less severe topography, but runs adjacent to existing infrastructure and the River Truim.
  • The junction at Dalwhinnie.
  • A number of access roads and Non-Motorised User (NMU) routes.
  • In addition, localised areas of peat may cause environmental or construction risks.

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.

Development of Mainline Dual Carriageway Options & Update on Junction Arrangements

A further round of public exhibitions for the Dalwhinnie to Crubenmore project have been scheduled for 18 and 19 August 2015. These aim to present work that has been undertaken to develop options for the new mainline dual carriageway and also provide an update on further work undertaken on the junction arrangements.

The exhibitions also present a further opportunity for the public to provide feedback on the recent work to help inform the on-going development and assessment of the dualling proposals between Dalwhinnie and Crubenmore, as we progress into the final stage of the assessment to identify a preferred option.”
