£3bn A9 dualling to start early

The £3bn programme for dualling the A9 is to start early with an enhanced scheme south of Aviemore shovel ready within this Parliament, Transport Scotland has revealed today.

Part of that programme includes extending the previous A9 Kincraig to Dalraddy overtaking-lane scheme to a full dualling project and this is expected to be ready for construction by 2015/6.

“Dualling each of these seven existing single carriageway sections represents a major project in it’s own right,” said Scotland’s Cabinet secretary for infrastructure and capital investment Alex Neil. “There is a great deal of detailed work to do and while we’ve taken into account the statutory processes in terms of delivery by 2025, the programme will develop and construction of some sections may overtake others as we progress with our plans.

“By 2015, we expect to have begun and, in some cases, completed the statutory processes to start procurement and then construction.
