Plan For Remaining A9 Dualling

Nearly half of the A9 Perth to Inverness trunk road will be dual carriageway by the end of 2030, rising to 85% by the end of 2033, with the final section expected to open by the end of 2035, reported Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Net Zero and Just Transition, Mairi McAllan, to the Scottish Parliament.

Work will begin immediately on preparations for procurement of the first of the three design and build contracts, for the Tay Crossing to Ballinluig project. The contract award is expected in Summer 2025.

The Cabinet Secretary confirmed that the preferred option for the Pass of Birnam to Tay Crossing project will include a number of elements of the community’s preferred option, including a roundabout at Dunkeld and junction layouts at The Hermitage and Dalguise.

Ms McAllan said: “This programme has faced challenges and I acknowledge that it has not progressed at the pace we would have liked.”
