A9 Dulnain to Carrbridge

Overnight works begin on Monday 17 September for nine nights


Motorists using the A9 from Dulnain to Carrbridge will benefit from an improved road surface as resurfacing is set to be carried out starting next week.

The works on a 1km section of the A9 across the A938 Carrbridge Junction will involve resurfacing the road to make it more durable and resilient against inclement weather, as well as providing a smoother and safer road for motorists.  

The project will begin on Monday 17 September and is scheduled to take place for nine nights, avoiding working on the busier Friday or Saturday nights.  The works will take place between 7pm and 7am each night.

To keep all roadworkers as well as road users safe during the project, a 10mph convoy system will be in place throughout the improvements each night.  The junction across the A938 at Carrbridge will remain open throughout the project, however it will be controlled by three-way traffic lights for safety. The road will be open as normal during the day.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “The surfacing improvements will help address the defects on this section of the A9 and greatly improve the road surface for motorists.  

“We’ve planned the works to take place overnight and are avoiding working at the weekends to limit the impact on motorists.  

“We’ve carried out consultation with all relevant stakeholders to inform them of our plans, and our teams will do all they can to carry out the surfacing improvements at this section of the A9 as quickly and safely as possible.

“We thank motorists in advance for their patience and we encourage all road users to plan their journeys in advance and leave some extra time to reach their destination.”

The road improvements from Dulnain to Carrbridge are part of a wider £24M programme of surfacing improvements across over 200 locations on the North West trunk road network for 2018.  A full programme of the surfacing repairs is available to download from the BEAR Scotland website at, and an interactive map of the upcoming improvements is available at
