A9 North of Crubenmore dual carriageway

·       Project set to begin from Thursday 2 July for three days

·       Strict physical distancing protocols in place to protect teams


Essential work to address a section of the A9 at the Glentrium Junction near Newtonmore is set to get underway from Thursday.   

The surfacing project will see improvements to a 160m stretch of the A9, ensuring it remains in a safe and reliable condition.

The essential project is scheduled to begin on Thursday 2 July and will take place over three days between 9.30am and 6pm each day, with work scheduled to be completed by 6pm on Monday 6 July. No works are programmed to take place over the weekend.

To ensure the safety of roadworkers and road users, a 10mph convoy traffic management system will be in place during working hours. The convoy system will be removed out with working hours, however a 30mph speed limit will remain in place, as traffic will be travelling over a temporary road surface.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative said: ““This £80,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve and strengthen this section of the A9 near Netwonmore, as well as create a smoother and safer journey for motorists.

“We’ve changed our ways of working to ensure all staff and the local community are kept safe at all times during the current Covid-19 pandemic, and all personnel will be subject to strict physical distancing protocols in line with Scottish Guidance.  Thorough risk assessments have been developed and cleansing stations have been implemented on site to ensure all staff remain safe.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A9, and every effort will be made to complete the project as quickly and safely as possible.”
