The A9 between Pitlochry and Killicrankie is being upgraded to a dual carriageway as part of Transport Scotland's wider A9 dualling programme. As part of that, the 6.4km stretch from Pitlochry to Killicrankie will be developed by Jacobs Engineering on behalf of Transport Scotland.
We have completed DMRB (Design Manual for Roads and Bridges) Stage 3 and published the draft Orders and Environmental Statement for the project for formal comment on 15 December 2017.
The draft road Orders define the line of the proposed route from Pitlochry to Killiecrankie with the draft Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO) defining the extent of the land required to deliver the project. Representations in relation to the draft Orders, including objections, were invited to be made in writing to Transport Scotland by 9 February 2018.
A Public Inquiry will be held commencing on Thursday 7, Friday 8 March 2019, and Tuesday 12, Wednesday 13 March 2019.
