Step forward for Crubenmore to Kincraig section
“The work is continuing across the route and road users are benefiting from the new dualled stretch between Kincraig and Dalraddy which opened to traffic last year. Advance works are already underway on the next section to be dualled between Luncarty and Pass of Birnam and now that we have announced the intention to award the main works construction contract, we expect construction to start in the coming months.
“The design work on the remaining parts of the dualling programme is progressing at pace. Hard on the heels of publishing draft Orders for the Dalraddy to Slochd scheme last week, we have now done the same for the Crubenmore to Kincraig scheme. This means that eight of the remaining nine schemes have now reached that important milestone.
“The last part of the dualling, through the Dunkeld and Birnam area, has been subject to a co-creative process and the community have identified their preferred route option. Transport Scotland is now taking forward further design and assessment work on this option to develop it further and consult locally before submitting it to Scottish Ministers for consideration.
“I would encourage anyone with an interest in the Crubenmore to Kincraig scheme to attend the exhibitions next month or view the draft Orders and Environmental Statements online and give us their views on our proposals.”
