24/7 Traffic Lights Start by Bankfoot from Monday

Transport Scotland are setting up a new traffic management layout by where the A9 meets Bankfoot from Monday to allow for works on farm access.

Operating just 50 meters south of Taste of Perthshire, the lights will be running for 24 hours 7 days of the week.

The two-way temporary traffic lights will be manually operated between 8am to 6pm.

As part of the works this upcoming week, Transport Scotland are also switching to a new permanent slip road from Bankfoot onto the A9.

A spokesperson for Transport Scotland said: “From 8 AM on Monday 21 June 2021, traffic entering or exiting Bankfoot via the B867 at the A9 Bankfoot South Junction will be switched onto the new permanent slip roads. 

“The new northbound carriageway of the A9 trunk road remains under construction, therefore traffic entering and exiting Bankfoot South Junction will be directed over a short section of temporary carriageway to join the B867 or A9 northbound respectively.”
