Balfour Beatty Set To Be Named A9 Dualling Contractor

Transport Scotland has announced that Balfour Beatty Civil Engineering will be  appointed to dual the A9 between Tomatin and Moy in contract worth £184.7 million.  

The contract will kickstart the Government’s rolling programme of work to achieve its delivery plan to dual the A9 between Perth and Inverness by 2035.

This agreement covers a six mile section of single carriageway being upgraded to dual carriageway. Cabinet secretary for transport Fiona Hyslop said: “Major transport infrastructure supports the local community and businesses, providing jobs and delivering economic growth throughout the project and beyond.

“It has been fantastic to see the impact contractors working on the advance works have already brought to the local community, and I look forward to delivering further benefits to local businesses and communities through our investment in the construction of this section.”

  • Transport News has a special feature on the A9 in the August 2024 issue focusing on the gradual piecemeal upgrade to dual carriageway.
