Engaging with local communities is at the heart of all of Transport Scotland’s major construction projects and will continue to be vital as work progresses on dualling the stretch of the A9 between Kincraig and Dalraddy.
The Contractor has a dedicated Public Liaison Officer (PLO) who is committed to keeping the local community informed as the project progresses.
Please contact the PLO for any enquiries relating to the construction of this project:

We expect there will be some traffic disruption during the construction phase, although every effort will be made to ensure any inconvenience to road users is kept to a minimum. Police Scotland and The Highland Council will be consulted prior to traffic management proposals being approved.
Road users are advised that there will be a change in road layout through the project - both directions of traffic will switch onto approximately 5km of the newly upgraded northbound carriageway from the evening of Friday 23 June 2017. This will allow the third phase of work to start, including removing previously installed temporary works and completing site-wide landscaping and finishing works.
A 40 mph speed limit, together with average speed cameras, and a prohibition on overtaking remain in place on this stretch of the A9 to ensure the safety of road users and the workforce on the road network.
These traffic restrictions are expected to remain in place for the duration of the work. Road users should expect some disruption to their travel times during construction, and are advised to plan journeys in advance.
Every effort will be made to minimise disruption, however drivers should expect some delays and should allow additional time for journeys. We would like to thank road users for their co-operation.
