£290,000 SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A9 north of Moulinearn, southbound

 

Works start Monday 28 October for 10 days

 

 

Motorists using the A9 north of Moulinearn near Pitlochry are set to benefit from an improved road surface as a new road maintenance project is set to begin next week.

The £290,000 investment by Transport Scotland will see improvements to over 500m of the southbound carriageway of the A9, creating a smoother and safer road for motorists.

The improvements are scheduled to start on Monday 28 October and will take up to 10 days to complete. The project will take place between 7am and 7pm each day and expected to be completed by 7pm on Friday 8 November. No works are scheduled for Saturday or Sunday.

To ensure the safety of road workers and road users, temporary traffic lights and a 10mph convoy system will be in place during the project.  A lane closure will remain in place outwith working hours as well as a 30mph speed restriction as traffic will be travelling on a temporary surface.  The northbound A9 will be unaffected during the project.

Commenting on the project, Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “The £290,000 investment from Transport Scotland will allow our teams to carry out these essential resurfacing works at this section of the A9 near Pitlochry, greatly improving the condition and safety of the route in this area.

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption including scheduling the project to avoid working at the weekend, and our teams will do all they can to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.

“We thank motorists in advance for their patience whilst we carry out these surfacing improvements 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 extra time for travel.”
