Transport Scotland’s on-going policy is to improve the A9 Trunk Road in accordance with the A9 Route Action Plan. This project allows for additional opportunities for overtaking slower moving traffic on this section of road.
No additional land was required and all works were contained within the existing trunk road boundary.
Environmental reviews were undertaken as part of the design and recommendations were incorporated into the detailed design. The new road surface helps to reduce road noise and thus bring long term benefits to road users and the surrounding area.
