Latest A9 Section Completed

A NEW six mile stretch of dual carriageway on the A9 between Perth and Dunkeld has been officially opened.
The £96 million section runs from Luncarty to Pass of Birnam and is the latest stage in the £3 billion project. There now remains 70 miles of road between Inverness and Perth to dual.
Transport Minister Graeme Dey said the new section ‘will improve road safety, journey times and journey reliability for the millions of road users that use this strategic route north each year’.
It has taken two and a half years to complete the section, and comes four years after the previous stretch, a five mile section between Kincraig and Dalraddy south of Aviemore, was opened.
The next part of the A9 to be dualled is an eight mile sector between Tomatin and Moy, north of Aviemore, with £115 million earmarked for the project.
