Fugro Geoservices has won the ground investigation contract for the A9 dualling between Crubenmore and Kincraig.
Due to start later this month, the £2.7M contract for the 16km section of the A9 between Crubenmore and Kincraig, is the latest contract to be awarded.
Cabinet secretary for transport, infrastructure and connectivity Michael Matheson said: “Our work to deliver the ambitious A9 Dualling programme is ongoing with design work continuing and advance works underway on the Luncarty to Pass of Birnam scheme with construction to start in the next few months.
“Having published the draft Orders for the Crubenmore to Kincraig scheme, we are taking forward plans for ground investigations for the same scheme to help inform the ongoing design work.
“These vital investigations are due to start later this month, with the work expected to last around 12 weeks.”
Last month Raeburn Drilling and Geotechnical were awarded the £4M ground investigation contract for the 9.7km stretch of the route between Tomatin and Moy- the most northerly section of the A9 dualling programme. In August Soil Engineering Geoservices were awarded a £1.1M ground investigation contract for 8km section of the A9 between Tay Crossing to Ballinluig.
