£75,000 footway improvements to be installed on A9 at Latheronwheel

Works start Monday 19 February for six weeks


A £75,000 footway improvement project has been announced for the A9 at Latheronwheel, with the first phase of construction set to get underway next week.

Phase One of the project will involve construction of new footways on both sides of the A9 as well as improvements to the existing footway to the north of Latheronwheel, planned to start on Monday 19 February for around six weeks.  Temporary traffic lights will be in place for safety to protect road workers as well as motorists during the improvements.   

Temporary pedestrian access will be arranged for the duration of the works to allow safe access around the site. 

Phase Two will involve extending the existing southbound footway at Latheronwheel further south on the A9, and is likely to begin in the spring. 

As well as the footway improvements, new drainage and road signs will be installed to help improve safety on this section of the A9 for all road users.  

BEAR Scotland has been working with all relevant stakeholders to inform them of the project and share information about the traffic managements that will be in place.  

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “Trunk road safety is a top priority at BEAR, and we’re pleased to begin works to improve access for pedestrians on the A9 at Latheronwheel.  

“We’re constructing sections of new footway and also resurfacing sections of the existing footway as well as installing additional signage to further improve safety in the area.  

“The traffic management arrangements are essential for the protection of both our workforce as well as motorists, so we encourage all road users to follow any signs or temporary arrangements in place and our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.

“We encourage all road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date journey information.”
