Further progress on A9 Dualling design work
Local communities on or near this section of the route and road users will get a chance to see the plans at public exhibitions in Ballinluig next month with more draft Orders and public exhibitions for further sections due shortly.
Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity, Michael Matheson said:
“Work is continuing across the A9 between Perth and Inverness to complete the dualling of the route by 2025. This is one of the biggest transport infrastructure projects in Scotland's history, and we remain on target to meet our commitment.
“When completed, our ambitious programme will bring many benefits for road users, communities and businesses who live along or use this important route between central Scotland and the Highlands and Islands.
“Road users are benefiting from the new dualled stretch between Kincraig and Dalraddy which opened to traffic last year and advance works have started on the next section to be dualled between Luncarty and Pass of Birnam with construction expected to get underway in the coming months.
“Building on the publication of draft Orders for four sections last year and for the most northerly section of the A9 between Tomatin and Moy in May, this further progress will be welcomed by all those who travel on the road which links the Highlands and Islands to the central belt.
“We expect to publish draft orders for further dualling projects shortly.
“I would encourage anyone with an interest in the Tay Crossing to Ballinluig scheme to attend the exhibitions next month or view the draft Orders and Environmental Statement online and give us their views on our proposals.”
