A9 dualling works underway

Work on Scotland’s £3bn A9 upgrade scheme begins today on the five-mile long section between Kincraig and Dalraddy.

The £35M Kincraig-Dalraddy contract will involve over 700,000t of excavation and the delivery of 18 hectares of new road carriageway.

This phase of work is expected to be complete by summer 2017.

Scotland’s secretary for infrastructure, investment and cities Keith Brown said: “With the official opening of the Borders Railway and now the ground-breaking of work on the A9, this has been a historic week for transport infrastructure in Scotland.

“With nearly three quarters of a million tonnes of excavation work to be carried out on this section here at Kincraig alone, we are at the start of a long journey to deliver the entire programme. But we are committed to this programme and we will remain focused to ensure this work, which is now at the hard end of construction, is seen through to a successful conclusion.”

The A9 dualling programme will see around 80 miles of upgraded road delivered between Perth and Inverness. The project is scheduled for completion by 2025.
