Meet the Cross Tay Link Road Contractors and Have Your Say

The Perth and Kinross Council are inviting local people to have their say on the plan to construct a new bridge which crosses the River Tay.

People from the community can have their say at the Luncarty Memorial Hall on Thursday 17 March from 3pm – 7pm and at the Robert Douglas Memorial Hall, Scone on Tuesday 22 March from 3pm – 7pm.

Perth & Kinross Council Leader, Councillor Murray Lyle said: “Although we held extensive public consultation around this project at the planning stage, local people will now get the chance to meet the main Contractor and find out more about the economic and environmental benefits this new project will deliver for the area’s communities and businesses.”

There, main contractor BAM Nuttall will have staff on hand to answer questions and presentation material will be on show for the public to look through.

As part of the event there will also be an opportunity to sign up for two new community groups that will become a sounding board for the project.

BAM Nuttall Project Director, William Diver added: “We are looking to establish two new groups on either side of the River Tay, each will be used by the project team to feedback local views on how the project is developing. In particular we will want input into how the wider community benefits projects that are integral to the success of the Cross Tay Link Road project can be realised.”

The project is set to realign two kilometres of the A9 in order to the new Cross Tay Link Road, which is a £118m bridge with three span supports holding it up and connecting traffic north of the Inveralmond Roundabout with the eastern bank of the River Tay.
