Progress on A9 dualling

Motorists are being asked to plan ahead for traffic restrictions on the A9, between Tomatin and Moy, with the next stage of the A9 Dualling programme set to get underway.

Ground investigations will begin on the 11th July 2016 and last for around seven weeks. Although 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 as we progress our plans to dual this section of the route.

“We apologise for any inconvenience this 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.”
