A9 Dualling Ground Investigations to start next week on section closest to Inverness

The ground investigations, part of the A9 Dualling programme, will begin on Monday 13 March and are expected to take three weeks.

Although most of the work will not be carried out on the existing road, the traffic management measures will be in place to allow work beside the carriageway to be carried out safely. The traffic management arrangements will include short, alternate single file traffic sections controlled by temporary traffic signals.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“This ground investigation is needed to get vital information on the existing ground conditions in the vicinity of the A9 carriageway between Tomatin and Moy, the most northerly section of the A9 Dualling programme, as we progress our plans to dual the road.

“This is the latest in a series of ground investigations taking place along the route having started works between Tay Crossing and Ballinluig last week.

“We apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause and would thank road users and local communities in advance for their patience over the next few weeks. The contractor will closely monitor the operation of the traffic management measures to ensure that delays are kept to a minimum.

“When planning their journeys, we’d encourage drivers to visit the Traffic Scotland website for the latest travel updates.”
