How we plan traffic management
All traffic management for the project is planned in a manner that minimises the impact on the local community and minimises delays, disruptions and diversions to existing traffic. To help make sure that our contractor achieves this, traffic management proposals are planned and coordinated through a regular traffic management meeting, chaired by the contractor and attended by Transport Scotland and representatives of Bear Scotland, Perth and Kinross Council and Police Scotland.
Safety of road users and the workforce through the construction area is a key priority for Transport Scotland, so we work closely with our contractor, Balfour Beatty to ensure that their proposals reflect this, in addition to keeping disruption to a minimum.
As the project develops, updates on major temporary traffic management to allow construction of the project to progress, will be provided here. The dates given are as accurate as possible, but are subject to change at short notice.
For enquiries relating to traffic management, please contact Balfour Beatty on 0800 193 7313 or email, A9L2B@balbourbeatty.com.
Traffic management for duration of project
Major traffic management will be in place on the A9 between Luncarty and the Pass of Birnam in both directions to allow construction works to dual the carriageway to progress.
Traffic restrictions including narrow lanes and temporary safety cameras to enforce a reduced speed limit of 40mph through the works area will be implemented from Monday 4th February 2019.
The traffic management installation will take place overnight from 7:30pm to 6:30am, from Monday 4 February for approximately 2 weeks.
This traffic management will remain in place until completion of the project in Spring 2021.
