A9 Cairnie Brae, southbound



Works begin Friday 11 October for three days


A section of the A9 southbound near Perth between Broom of Dalreoch and Aberuthven is set to benefit from carriageway resurfacing improvements worth £190,000 starting this weekend.

The improvements had originally been programmed to take place in August but due to adverse weather the project was postponed. 

The resurfacing improvements will take place on the A9 southbound carriageway near Perth which will involve teams carrying out surfacing repairs across sections of the route as well as improvements to road markings, creating a safer and smoother journey for motorists.

The project is set to begin at 7.30pm on Friday 11 October and has been planned to take place over one weekend using 24-hour working, with all improvements set to be completed by 6.30am Monday 14 October. In preparation for the weekend works there will be lane closures in place for safety on both the northbound and southbound carriageway during the daytime on Friday 11 October to allow for traffic management to be put in place ahead of the weekend works.

To ensure roadworkers and road users are kept safe during the project, a contraflow system of traffic management will be in place on the A9 between Broom of Dalreoch and Aberuthven during the project. Due to the location of the surfacing improvements signed diversions will also be in place for people looking for access to or from the A9 via the B9141 Dunning road or the U50 Findo Gask road.

Consultation has taken place with all relevant stakeholders in advance of the resurfacing project to make them aware of the traffic management arrangements and to minimise any inconvenience.

Andy Thompson, BEAR Scotland’s North East Representative, said: “This latest £190,000 investment from Transport Scotland will allow us to carry out surfacing improvements on this section of the A9 to ensure our network continues to operate at the highest standard.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists during this project. To help minimise delays as much as possible, we’ve planned the improvements to take place over one weekend using 24-hour working, and our teams will do all they can to complete the works as quickly and safely as possible.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A9. We encourage road users 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.”
