Soil Engineering has been awarded two consecutive sections of the A9 dualling ground investigation.
In the last of the latest series of ground investigation contracts for the A9 Dualling programme awarded today, Soil Engineering will undertake the £2.6M contract for the Pitlochry to Killiecrankie and Killiecrankie to Glen Garry schemes totalling over 27km.
Incorporating a wide range of investigation techniques, including works on slopes and the use of sonic drilling, the investigations will be undertaken in a variety of settings, including verge works on the A9 itself, which will be coordinated with the road operator Bear Scotland.
Soil Engineering will be commencing preparation works with project stakeholders over the next few weeks, before mobilising a team to complete the works in the new year.
The works will be managed by a dedicated project team, with specialist support from both Soil Engineering’s major projects team and Coatbridge ground investigation team,
The team has already completed three major Transport Scotland ground investigations this year - A9 Tay Crossing to Ballinluig, A720 Sherrifhall Junction, and A82 Tarbert to Inverarnan.
