Reminder - upcoming overnight closures of A9

A9 - Tullybelton beam lift close up

As part of the A9 Dualling: Luncarty to Pass of Birnam project, the A9 will be closed in both directions between the Luncarty Junction and the A923 Dunkeld Junction, from 8:30 PM to 6 AM each night between 27th – 29th November 2019.

Road users are reminded to allow extra time for their journey during these closures as diversion routes will be in place. 

The closures are required to install concrete bridge beams over the existing A9 carriageway at two new overbridge structures at Pitlandie (north of Luncarty) and Coltrannie (north of Bankfoot).

These two new overbridge structures will provide access for residents and farmers who live and work adjacent to the A9, allowing the existing accesses off the A9 to be closed. When complete these measures will improve safety along this section of the A9 for all road users.

Signed diversion routes will be in place on approach to the closure area, via the A85 for northbound traffic and via the A923 Dunkeld junction for southbound traffic.

Access to the communities of Luncarty, Bankfoot and Stanley will be maintained via the local road network for the duration of the three overnight closures and access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

These works are weather dependent as the heavy lifting operations are sensitive to high winds.

Please follow Transport Scotland and Traffic Scotland’s social media channels to receive updates on all traffic management. 

Live traffic information is available from the Traffic Scotland website
