OVERNIGHT RESURFACING IMPROVEMENTS
A9 Mains of Balhaldie, Southbound
Works begin Monday 24 April for five nights
Overnight resurfacing improvements are set to be carried out on a stretch of the A9 between Dunblane and Gleneagles starting on Monday night.
This section of the southbound A9 at Mains of Balhaldie, just south of Greenloaning, is used by almost 15,000 motorists a day and the improvements will help ensure that the A9 continues to operate safely for years to come.
The works follow on from previous improvements completed at Greenloaning and Blackford which took place earlier this month.
The resurfacing improvements will begin on Monday 24 April and are scheduled to take place over five nights, from 7.30pm to 6.30am. To allow the works to take place safely a convoy system will be in use each night to protect road workers as well as motorists during the improvements.
Consultation has taken place with local residents in advance of the resurfacing to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.
Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative said: “The investment from Transport Scotland will allow us to improve the road surface on this section of the A9 and repair any cracks, potholes or other defects, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.
“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for this scheme by scheduling the works to take place overnight and avoiding the busier Saturday nights, and our teams will do all they can to limit the impact of these works.
“We encourage motorists to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website and leave some extra time to reach their destination.”
Real time journey information is available from Traffic Scotland on www.trafficscotland.org or twitter @trafficscotland.
Materials removed from the existing carriageway will be recycled using SEPA approved methods.
