A9 Dualling Scheme Targets New Milestones

Construction News Image
A new set of milestones have been put forward for the A9 Dualling: Luncarty to Pass of Birnam project.

Transport Scotland has announced overnight road closures to help deliver works under the scheme next month.

The A9 will be closed between the Luncarty Junction and the A923 Dunkeld Junction, in both directions, between 8:30am to 6am on Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 February 2020, and if required from 10pm to 6am on Friday 14 February 2020. This will facilitate the installation of the final set of precast concrete bridge beams at Gelly overbridge.

The Gelly overbridge, north of Bankfoot, is the most northern structure on the project and will provide access to adjacent landowners and residents. The Gelly overbridge is also a 'green bridge' meaning that it will accommodate movement of wildlife across the A9.


More than half of the deck area will be landscaped to provide a safe route for a variety of wildlife to safely cross over the A9 carriageway. A number of 'green bridges' have been built on projects in Scotland including three on the recently opened Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route.

These works are weather dependent as heavy lifting operations are sensitive to high winds.

During the closures, signed diversion routes will be in place on approach to the closure area, via the A85 for northbound traffic and via the A923 Dunkeld Junction for southbound traffic.

Access to the communities of Luncarty, Bankfoot and Stanley will be maintained via the local road network for the duration of the two overnight closures.

Access for emergency vehicles will be maintained at all times.

When completed, the A9 Dualling: Luncarty to Pass of Birnam project will offer road users 15 km of continuous dualled carriageway from Inveralmond roundabout in Perth to Pass of Birnam.
