But now there is light at the end of the glen! Traffic Scotland has a project in preparation titled “A9 dualling Perth to Inverness”. This is a £3 billion project which involves the upgrade of 80 miles of single carriageway along the A9 between Perth and Inverness. The project is designed to deliver economic growth through improvements to road safety and journey times as well as better links to pedestrian, cycling and public transport facilities. Hurrah I hear you shouting… Well don’t hold your breath for now as it will be ready in 2025 but at least something will be done and that’s great news.
Transport Scotland has a lengthy article on their website with all the ins and outs of this huge project as well as a very informative A9 Dualling Newsletter where you can read in more detail about each section and the work involved.
