Contraflow working will take place on the A9 from next month as contractor BAM Nutall commence works on the A9 to tie-in the existing road with the new realigned A9 as part of the Cross Tay Link Road works.
In order to facilitate the works which are associated with the new flyover between the Inveralmond Roundabout and Luncarty, a contraflow system will be in place from the 11th of April until late August 2023.
William Diver, BAM Nuttall Project Director commented, “Whilst these works will allow for a more efficient infrastructure in the long term, we fully appreciate the inconvenience caused to motorists during this period and I would like to assure all road users that the team is committed to ensuring we complete this vital section of work with as little disruption as is possible.”
In order to construct the tie in works for the new A9 section of the Cross Tay Link Road, works will be undertaken on the A9 dual carriageway between Inveralmond Roundabout and north of the Luncarty junction. This will take place in two phases:
The first contraflow will run from the 11th of April until the 24th of June 2023, with the northbound lanes closed on the A9 and a contraflow in place on the existing southbound lanes, with the Luncarty junction remaining open for both the on and off slips.
The second contraflow will take place between late June and late August with traffic under contraflow on the new A9 road alignment on the northbound lanes. This works will run for a period of 10 weeks. During these works the Luncarty junction southbound will be closed, with a shuttle bus provided to maintain public transport provisions.
Grant Laing, Leader of Perth & Kinross Council commented, “It is encouraging to see Phase 2 of the Perth Transport Futures Project now underway. The Cross Tay Link Road is the central element of the project and on completion, it will improve traffic flow and reduce journey times throughout the area. It will also enhance pedestrian and cycle safety, increase network capacity and significantly reduce traffic congestion and related pollution in Perth city centre.”
