Transport Scotland is continuing the design work to progress the A9 Dualling programme.

The draft Orders and Environmental Statement for the Glen Garry to Dalwhinnie and Dalwhinnie to Crubenmore projects have been published today.
 
Locals and road users will get a chance to see the plans at public exhibitions in Dalwhinnie Village Hall on 17 and 18 January 2018.
 
Cabinet Secretary for the Economy, Jobs and Fair Work, Keith Brown said:
 
“In total over the last few weeks we have published draft Orders for four dualling projects totalling around 30 miles of the 80 miles to be dualled.
 
“I would encourage anyone with an interest in this project to attend the exhibitions on 17 and 18 January or view the draft Orders and environmental statement online.
 
“There will be no let-up in the design work as we expect to publish draft Orders for further dualling projects over the coming months.
 
“Along with this, we have Kincraig to Dalraddy open to traffic and work due to start early next year on the first stretch to be dualled out of Perth between Luncarty and Pass of Birnam. This Government is committed to completing the dualling programme by 2025 and we remain on target to do so.”
