Notable events relating to major projects within the report since last update

A9 Dualling: Luncarty to Pass of Birnam

Project opened to traffic in August when all traffic management including lane and speed restrictions were removed allowing road users access to the 9.5 km of new dual carriageway. The opening of this section now provides 15 km of continuous dual carriageway from Inveralmond Roundabout to Birnam for the first time. Over next few months, work will continue to undertake finishing and landscaping works and project is expected to be fully completed winter 2021.

A9 Dualling: Tomatin to Moy

The publication of the Contract Notice for the project took place in August and this marks a significant step to drive forward the economic recovery of the north of Scotland. Project will result in nearly 20 miles of continuous dual carriageway south of Inverness once complete and will also improve greater connectivity for public transport, with upgrades to approximately 10 km of non-motorised user routes to encourage active travel such as walking and cycling.
