A9 Ballinluig

Works start Sunday 10 March for seven nights

Motorists using the A9 near Pitlochry are set to benefit from an improved road surface as £250,000 worth of resurfacing works are to get underway from Sunday night.

The resurfacing improvements will address any defects in the road surface, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The overnight improvements are scheduled to begin on Sunday 10 March and will take seven nights to complete. The project will take place between 7pm and 7am each night with works expected to be finished by 7am on Tuesday 19 March. No works are programmed for Friday or Saturday nights.

To ensure the safety of road workers as well as motorists, a 10mph convoy system will be in place each night during the improvements.  The convoy system will be removed outwith working hours however single lane closures will remain in place continuously for safety until the project is complete. 

As the surfacing improvements cross the A924 Pitlochry southbound slip road, the slip road will be closed for safety during working hours overnight with a signed diversion in place via Bridge Road and Foss Road.  The slip road will also be closed for safety during the day on Monday 11 March with the same above diversion in place as there will be an open excavation at the top of the slip-road. 

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “These £250,000 essential resurfacing works will upgrade the existing road surface, greatly improving the quality and safety for road users.

“The traffic management arrangements are necessary to ensure the safety of road workers and motorists. We have planned the improvements to take place overnight to minimise disruption for road users.

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible, and we thank the local community and all road users for their patience in advance while we carry out this essential work. We would encourage motorists to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information.” 

The improvements to the A9 are part of a wider programme of surfacing improvements across the North West trunk road network for 2018/19. 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
