Lane Closures on Southbound A9 for Roadworks

A lane of both the north and south bound carriageway will be closed overnight on from 7:30pm on Thursday March 10th, until 6:30am on Friday 11th to allow for roadworks to be completed on the A9.

The roadworks are being carried out on the southbound section of the A9 between Inveralmond Roundabout and the McDiarmid Junction.

Starting on Thursday, March 10th and running until Friday, March 11th, there will be overnight lane closures on both the northbound and southbound carriageway will be in place between 7.30pm and 6.30am to allow contraflow traffic management to be installed ahead of the project beginning.

A single lane closure will remain in place on the northbound carriageway during the day on Friday for safety reasons.

From Friday, March 11th to Monday, March 14th, a contraflow system will be in place from Inveralmond Roundabout to McDiarmid on-slip with all traffic running in contraflow on the A9 northbound to ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists.

The contraflow system will be in place from 7.30pm on Friday, March 11th until 6.30am on Monday, March 14th. The A9 southbound off-slip to McDiarmid Junction will also be closed during this time, with all traffic being diverted via Broxden Roundabout and back up the A9 northbound.

Commenting on the improvements, Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “This £330,000 investment from Transport Scotland will greatly improve and strengthen this busy section of the A9 in Perth, ensuring the integrity the network remains at the highest of standards.

“Due to the nature of the works contraflow traffic management is necessary and motorists might experience some delays. We have planned for operations to take place consecutively where possible to complete the scheme as quickly as we can to minimise disruption.

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

All of the improvements are expected to be completed by 6.30am Monday, March 14th, provided the weather conditions allow.
