A9 Crubenmore to Kincraig

Overview

This 16 km road from Crubenmore to Kincraig is being upgraded to dual carriageway as part of a wider programme to improve the A9 between Perth and Inverness. Design work is being taken forward by our consultants CH2MHill / Fairhurst Joint Venture.

Community engagement

Community engagement is a priority with all of our projects. Working with those affected by the A9 dualling programme is at the heart of our planning and we regularly run engagement events to consult local communities, road users, businesses and individuals as our plans are progressed.

Public drop-in sessions – April 2018

Public drop-in sessions are being held in Kingussie and Newtonmore to provide local communities and road users with an update on the design development since the preferred route exhibitions in March 2017.

Visitors will have the opportunity to view and comment on the design development of the preferred route option, including updates on junctions, side roads, accesses and non-motorised user routes. The drop-ins will also provide information on the latest plans for a bridge over the River Spey.

Designing the route

The project has a number of considerations in the ongoing design process:

  • this section is low lying, passing the towns of Newtonmore and Kingussie, which will require junction provision. It is constrained by the highly sensitive Insh Marshes, and River Spey and its floodplain
  • widening of the 140m, 7-span structure over the River Spey and general road widening north of the structure will present environmental and construction challenges
  • provision of local access and non-motorised user routes.
