This 6.4 km road from Pitlochry to Killiecrankie is being upgraded to dual carriageway as part of a wider programme to improve the A9 between Perth and Inverness.
We have completed DMRB (Design Manual for Roads and Brides) Stage 3 and published the draft Orders and Environmental Statement for the project in December 2017. The draft road Orders define the line of the proposed route from Killiecrankie to Glen Garry with the draft Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) defining the extent of the land required to deliver the project.
A Public Local Inquiry (PLI) was not required for the project, however a number of objections not withdrawn were considered by the Reporter appointed by the Planning and Environmental Appeals Division (DPEA) of the Scottish Government. The Reporter issued his report to Scottish Ministers in September 2019
Scottish Ministers published their decision notice in February 2020 which concluded that the Orders should be made.
Scottish Ministers published their decision notice in March 2021 which concluded that the Orders should be made.
The Road Orders and Compulsory Purchase Order were made on 27 October 2021 and came into force on 26 November 2021.
