A9 Aviemore Bypass


Works begin on Wednesday 9 October over four weeks



Motorists using the A9 Aviemore Bypass are set to benefit from an improved road surface as surfacing improvements are planned to get underway next week.

The £395,000 investment by Transport Scotland will see improvements to a 2km section of the A9 near Aviemore, creating a smoother and safer road for motorists.

The improvements are scheduled to start on Wednesday 9 October and will be split into two phases of work. The project is programmed as follows:


  • A9 Aviemore Bypass – Wednesday 9 October for 11 days, 7am to 7pm

The project will begin on Wednesday 9 October for 11 days, 7am to 7pm each day. To ensure the safety of road workers and motorists, temporary traffic lights and a 10mph convoy system will be in place during working hours. No works are programmed for Saturday or Sunday with the first phase of works expected to be completed by 7pm Wednesday 23 October. All traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.


  • A9/A95 Granish Junction – Sunday 27 October for three nights, 7pm to 7am

The second phase of the project is scheduled to get underway on Sunday 27 October for three nights. The improvements will take place between 7pm and 7am each night with surfacing expected to be completed by 7am Wednesday 30 October. For safety, the A9/A95 Granish Junction will be closed, and a signed diversion route will be in place via the A9 Lynwig Junction through Aviemore. The A9 will remain fully open throughout the project and all traffic management will be removed outwith working hours.

Emergency services will be allowed access at all times.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s Representative for the North West, said: “This essential resurfacing project will create a much-improved road surface, greatly increasing the quality of the carriageway at this section of the A9.

“We’ve taken steps to help minimise disruption as much as much as possible during the project, including avoiding weekend working, however our teams will look to complete the improvements as quickly and safely as possible.

“We thank motorists in advance for their patience whilst we carry out these essential surfacing improvements on the A9 and would encourage road users to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up to date travel information and allow some extra time for travel.”
