Three overnight closures of A9 - Luncarty to Dunkeld

Foundation and piers

The A9 north of Perth, between Luncarty and Dunkeld, will be closed overnight for three consecutive nights from Monday 29th July 2019.

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 (July 29 to 31, 2019).

The closures are required to install concrete bridge beams which will form the new Stanley/Tullybelton Junction overbridge.

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, while access for emergency vehicles will be available at all times.

Gemma Montrose, Project Sponsor for Transport Scotland, said:

“Installation of the bridge beams on the new overbridge at the Tullybelton Stanley junction is the first major milestone of the A9 Dualling: Luncarty to Pass of Birnam project. A great deal of planning and work has been achieved to get to this point.

“Our contractor, Balfour Beatty plans to make full use of the closures - by making alterations to the site traffic management and to maximise the additional work activity they can complete while the road is closed.

“Road users will encounter alterations to the temporary traffic management at the Stanley Road junction and at the north extents of the site. Drivers are advised to approach with care.

"We would like to thank road users for their continued patience while we endeavor to complete these works as quickly as possible.”

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