Works start on Sunday 5 June for four nights



Motorists using the A9 southbound near Inveralmond Roundabout in Perth are to benefit from an improved road surface with works on the carriageway set to get underway from Sunday 5 June.

The £80,000 investment from Transport Scotland will see improvements to a section of the A9 southbound dual carriageway, immediately north of Inveralmond Roundabout, improving safety and ride comfort for road users.

Works are scheduled to begin on the evening of Sunday 5 June and are expected to take four nights to complete. The works will take place between 8pm and 6am each night and are due to be completed by 6am Thursday 9 June, subject to weather conditions.

To keep roadworkers and road users safe during the project, a 10mph convoy system will be in place over the extent of the site during working hours.  A single lane closure will also be in place on each of the road approaches to Inveralmond Roundabout as well as on the roundabout itself.

On the night of Monday 6 June, no direct access to the A912 (Dunkeld Road) will be available from Ruthvenfield Road or from the A9 south of Inveralmond Roundabout. Traffic on these roads will be diverted, utilising the A9 and Luncarty Junction to access the A912 from the north.  Traffic management will be removed outwith working hours; however a 30mph speed limit and warning signs will be in place as vehicles will be travelling over a temporary surface.

Eddie Ross, BEAR Scotland’s North West Representative, said: “This surfacing project immediately north of Inveralmond Roundabout has been designed to improve the general condition and safety of this section of the A9.

“The traffic management is essential to the safety of both roadworkers and motorists. Regrettably there will be some delays, but our teams will do all they can to complete the scheme as safely and quickly as possible.

“We thank road users for the patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A9. We encourage them to plan their journeys in advance by checking the Traffic Scotland website for up-to-date travel information and allow some extra time to reach their destination.”
