A9 road users are advised to take care on approach to the A9 Dualling: Luncarty to Pass of Birnam project as a new traffic management layout is implemented between Luncarty and Bankfoot North Junctions.
Traffic will switch to a section of newly constructed carriageway from the early hours of Tuesday 17 November.
As a result, overnight temporary traffic lights will be required on the A9 overnight on 16 November, between 7:30pm and 6am, to allow the removal of redundant temporary barriers, to relocate site access points and alter the traffic management layout to guide road users on to the new carriageway.
Following the traffic switch, the new traffic management layout will also affect the following junctions and slip roads:
Bankfoot South Junction: Access to Bankfoot for northbound traffic will be provided via a temporary junction approximately 40m south of the existing junction. Road users should pay close attention to all signage on approach to this new layout.
Stanley/Tullybelton Junction: The new slip roads on the east side of the new Stanley/Tullybelton Junction will also come into operation from 17 November providing access from the southbound A9 to the U38 Stanley Road and Luncarty. There remains no access to cross the A9 via the new structure at the current time. Those wishing to access Tullybelton from the A9 should continue to follow the signed diversion via Bankfoot. Local access to Newmill Farm from the A9 will be maintained.
Luncarty North Junction: The Luncarty North Junction will close permanently at the C569 Strathord Station Road. Access to the northbound A9 from Luncarty will be via Luncarty South Junction to the B9099 (for Luncarty & Stanley). Access to and from the southbound A9 will be via the new slip roads at the Stanley/Tullybelton Junction and the new Luncarty Link Road.
Southbound traffic travelling to Luncarty will leave the A9 at the new Stanley/Tullybelton Junction and use the new slip roads to join the Luncarty Link Road towards the C569 Strathord Station Road.
Road users are reminded that traffic will remain in single carriageway configuration and the current restrictions including no overtaking and the 40mph speed restrictions remain in force, and will be enforced by Police Scotland and average speed cameras.
