OVERNIGHT SURFACING IMPROVEMENTS

 

A9 Pitlochry, northbound

 

Overnight works start Sunday 10 November for five nights

 

·         Pitlochry off-slip closure in place for safety

 

Motorists using the northbound A9 south of Pitlochry are set to benefit from a smoother road surface as surfacing improvements are set to get underway next week.

The project will see improvements made to a 400m section of the northbound A9 near Pitlochry at the end of the Ballinluig dualled section, creating a smoother and safer road for motorists. The project will also address a section of the A9 off-slip to Pitlochry. 

The improvements are scheduled to start on Sunday 10 November and will take five nights to complete. The project will take place between 7pm and 7am each night with the project expected to be completed by 7am on Friday 15 November.

To ensure the safety of road workers and road users, a 10mph convoy system will be in place during the project. The off-slip to Pitlochry will also be closed due to the location of the surfacing work, with motorists wishing to access Pitlochry diverted via the A924 adding approximately two minutes onto journey times.

For safety, the slip road has to remain closed during the daytime on Monday 11 and Tuesday 12 November due to deep excavations in the road surface.

Commenting on the surfacing improvements for the A9 north of Pitlochry off-slip, Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: “These surfacing improvements will help address any defects on this section of the A9 and greatly improve the road surface for motorists.

“The traffic management is essential to ensure the safety of road workers and road users, however we’ve taken steps to reduce disruption as much as possible by carrying out the surfacing improvements overnight.

“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.
