The Kincraig to Dalraddy project was the first section of the A9 to be dualled as part of the A9 Dualling Programme. It involved the widening of the online carriageway and road pavement from single to dual-carriageway.
The widened southern section of the project runs in parallel to the west of the existing A9 before crossing over and providing widening to the east of the A9 for the northern section of the project.
This project has four accommodation underpasses and involves one large culvert replacement.
The contract for the design, construction and maintenance of the Kincraig to Dalraddy section was awarded to a joint venture of Wills Bros Civil Engineering Ltd. and John Paul Construction in June 2015.
The road became fully operational on 30 September 2017. While the majority of works are now complete, the contractor remains on site with a reduced site presence, focusing on necessary finishing, snagging and landscaping works.
Other works completed previously on the A9 include the dualling of 3.2 km at Crubenmore, the Carrbridge Improvements, the Ballinluig Junction Improvements and Bankfoot Junction Improvements.
