A9 Wade Stone, northbound

Works begin Sunday 7 July for up to two weeks


Motorists using the A9 at Drumochter are set to benefit from an improved road surface as surfacing improvements are set to get underway this weekend.

The £290,000 investment by Transport Scotland will see improvements to section of the northbound A9 Drumochter dualled carriageway, creating a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

The overnight project is set to begin on Sunday 7 July and is programmed to take two weeks to complete. The improvements will take place between 7pm and 6am each night with surfacing works expected to be completed by 6am Friday 19 July. No works are programmed for Friday or Saturday nights.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists, there will be a 10mph convoy system in place during the works. The 10mph convoy will be removed outwith working hours, however a 50mph speed restriction will be in place for safety. The A9 southbound will be unaffected during the improvements.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “The £290,000 surfacing improvements will help address the defects on this section of the A9 and will greatly improve the road surface for motorists.

“The traffic management in place is essential to ensure the safety of road workers and road users. We’ve taken steps to reduced disruption to motorists as much as possible by carrying out the surfacing improvements overnight and avoiding working Friday and Saturday nights.

“Our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly as possible, and we thank motorists for their patience in advance while we carry out these improvements to the A9. We would also encourage motorists to plan ahead before setting out by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information.”
