A9 Tomatin to Moy


This 9.6 km road from Tomatin to Moy 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 May 2018. The draft road Orders define the line of the proposed route from Tomatin to Moy 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A Public Local Inquiry (PLI) was not required for the project, however a number of objections not withdrawn were considered by the Reporter appointed by the Planning and Environmental Appeals Division (DPEA) of the Scottish Government.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 October 2019.

Scottish Ministers published their decision notice in February 2020 which concluded that the Orders should be made.

The Road Orders and Compulsory Purchase Order were made on 27 January 2021 and came into force on 26 February 2021.

Community engagement

Community engagement is a priority with all of our projects. Working with those affected by the A9 dualling programme is at the heart of our planning and we regularly run engagement events to consult local communities, road users, businesses and individuals as our plans are progressed.

Designing the route

This project has a number of considerations in the ongoing design process:

  • local accesses and non-motorised user (NMU) facilities
  • working alongside the Highland Mainline Railway
  • peat of ecological importance
  • areas of ancient woodland
  • land use of adjacent farms and estates.
