Perthshire Roadshow Dates for A9 Dualling
Exhibition material for Tay Crossing to Ballinluig, Killiecrankie to Pitagowan, Pitagowan to Glen Garry, and Glen Garry to Dalwhinnie projects, will go on show this month and next at venues across Perthshire.
Derek Mackay, Minister for Transport & Islands said:
“The A9 Dualling Programme is the largest transport investment in Scotland’s history with around 80 miles of upgraded dualled road, and I’m delighted the next phase of design work is ready to see.
“The preparation work is moving on apace and locals and road users can see our early design plans which give more detailed analysis of route and junction options for four dualling projects– covering around a third of the overall programme.
“We are pressing ahead to make the A9 safer, and in addition to the shorter term measures we are taking, we recognise the need to get construction under way as soon as possible to dual those sections of remaining single trunk road. The first of this construction work is expected to start this summer between Kincraig and Dalraddy, and when complete will be a welcome improvement for users of the A9.
“I would encourage anyone with an interest in the latest design work to come visit one of the venues over the next few weeks and provide their feedback.”
