Additional A9 Ground Investigations to start next week

This work, which is due to get underway on Tuesday 26 September, follows the start of similar work recently on the long stretch between Pitlochry and Glen Garry.

Although the vast majority of the work, which is expected to last around 10 weeks, will be carried out away from the existing road and will not require traffic management, some traffic management measures will be required when necessary to allow work beside the carriageway to be carried out safely. This will include alternate single file traffic sections controlled by temporary traffic signals.
A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:
“This further ground investigation work is needed to get important information on the existing ground conditions in the vicinity of the A9 carriageway between Crubenmore and Kincraig as we progress our plans to dual this nearly 10 mile stretch of the road.

“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.

“While we do not expect major disruption to traffic, we would ask drivers to plan their journeys in advance using the Traffic Scotland website, twitter feed or Traffic Scotland radio.”
