Roadworks Close Lane to Broxden Roundabout

Drivers in Highland Perthshire are being reminded that a lane is going to be closed on the approach to the Broxden Roundabout this weekend.

The lane will be closed on the A9 southbound between Old Gallows Road Overbridge until just before the approach to Broxden Roundabout from 8am Saturday to 6pm on Sunday 30 January.

Commenting on the improvements, Ian Stewart, BEAR Scotland’s North East Unit Representative, said: “This investment from Transport Scotland will help address any defects in the road surface on the A9 between Inveralmond Roundabout and McDiarmid Junction. Our landscaping teams will also be carrying out essential improvements to the woodland strip which will ensure the continued safe operation of the network. 

“We’ve taken steps to minimise disruption for motorists as much as possible during the surfacing improvements by implementing a secondary diversion which should ease congestion on Ruthvenfield Road. Traffic signals at McDiarmid will also be altered to support the additional traffic flow. 

“Wide Loads are advised that as the A9 southbound is being closed, we are regrettably unable to offer an alternative route through local roads. Arrangements should therefore be made to change route or date of travel.

“We thank motorists for their patience in advance while our teams carry out these essential improvements on the A9 in Perth. 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.”
