Improvements set to begin on the A9 at Inveralmond Roundabout in Perth

 

  • Project will improve pedestrian safety and traffic flow

 

  • Works start 7 July for three weeks

 

Improvements at Inveralmond Roundabout are set to get underway on Sunday 7 July with the project expected to take up to three weeks to complete.

The project will involve improvements to traffic signals, the widening of a 40m stretch of carriageway, pedestrian safety improvements and lining upgrades on the roundabout.

Working in collaboration with Perth and Kinross Council, the improvements are scheduled to begin on Sunday 7 July with works programmed to take place in different phases to minimise impact to road users and accommodate works being carried out by the local authority on the Dunkeld Road.  The project is outlined to take place as follows;

 

·         Phase One

The project will begin on Sunday 7 July for five days. For safety reasons, there will be a single lane closure in place 24-hours a day on the A912 (Dunkeld Road) approach to the roundabout. This will allow for the new kerbline and carriageway widening to take place, ensuring the safety of road workers and motorists. Phase one will be completed by 6.30am on Friday 12 July.

 

·         Phase Two

Starting on Monday 15 July, the second phase will take place between 7.30pm and 6.30am each night. To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists there will be overnight lane closures in place at various stages on Inveralmond Roundabout. From Saturday 20 July the project will be removed for one week to minimise disruption while Perth and Kinross Council carry out resurfacing improvements on the Dunkeld Road (A912).  Teams will then return on Monday 29 July to compete the overnight works as before with all improvements scheduled to be completed by 6.30am Friday 2 August. All lanes will remain open during the daytime.

 

Throughout the project arrangements have been made so that pedestrian access to and from Inveralmond Industrial Estate will be unaffected, with temporary footways for pedestrians installed where required. 

Consultation has been carried with Perth and Kinross Council, local businesses and other relevant stakeholders to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience throughout the project.

Commenting on the improvements, Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This improvement project planned for Inveralmond Roundabout in Perth will help assist the operational flow of traffic as well as providing safety improvements for pedestrians.

“The traffic management is essential for ensuring the safety of roadworkers and motorists during the project, however we’ve taken steps to help minimise disruption as much as possible by planning sections of the project to take place overnight where possible. We’ve been working closely with Perth and Kinross Council to minimise the impact on road users and have scheduled our improvements around the week when Perth and Kinross Council undertake resurfacing works on the A912 Dunkeld Road to ensure disruption is minimal for road users.

“Our teams will do all they can to complete these improvements as quickly and safely as possible. We would like to thank motorists and the local community in advance while our teams carry out the project, and encourage them to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date traffic information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
