The latest ground investigations work for the A9 dualling programme is to start next Monday (4 March) on the southern stretch between Tay Crossing and Ballinluig, and is expected to last around five weeks.
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:
“Design work on the A9 Dualling programme continues at pace with eight of the nine remaining dualling schemes being designed now at draft Order stage.
“The latest critical investigations starting next Monday are for the section between Tay Crossing and Ballinluig and build on other ground investigations carried out for this scheme late last year.
“We apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause and would thank road users and local communities in advance for their patience during the works. 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.”
