A9 Tain Bypass


Project to begin mid-September


A new project to upgrade existing road signs along a stretch of the A9 at Tain is set to get underway later on this month. 

The £65,000 project will involve installing new road signs along the full length of the A9 Tain bypass.  The improvements will help to clearly identify the junctions on the bypass and the tourist destinations accessed within Tain.

The project has been designed to improve road user awareness of junction locations and layout and to help reduce the risk of accidents in the area.

Improvements are planned to begin in mid-September and are expected to take up to two months to complete with the project programmed to take place during the daytime.

The A9 will remain open throughout the project, however, to ensure the safety of road workers and motorists, temporary traffic lights will be required when installing some of the larger signage. All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “This road safety project on the A9 Tain bypass will see the existing traffic signs upgraded to the latest design standards. This will help to improve the safety for motorists on the A9 and accessing facilities in Tain.

“We thank motorists in advance for their patience while we work on this project and we would encourage them to plan ahead by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date information.
