To ensure a safe working environment for the construction of the new Cross Tay Link road the temporary 50mph speed limit on the A9 between the Inveralmond Roundabout and Luncarty will be reduced to 40mph.
The new temporary speed limit will run on both the north and south bound sections of the road.
In the update from Perth Transport Futures they said, “This is necessary due to the increased use by construction traffic of existing minor junctions off the A9.”
The A9 section of the project consists of the realignment of the current road and the creation of two new roundabouts, a new bridge over the carriageway and the creation or new Park & Choose and recreation areas.
The finished Cross Tay Link Road will see a new 3-span bridge over the River Tay and six kilometres of new road linking the A9 and the A93 to Blairgowrie and the A94 north of Scone.
The new road will significantly reduce traffic congestion and related pollution in Perth City centre while opening up active travel opportunities and will give access to areas around the city for sustainable development. It is the biggest infrastructure project ever carried out by Perth & Kinross Council.
