First major construction contract awarded on A9 Dualling Programme

A joint venture of Wills Bros Civil Engineering and John Paul Construction has won a £35M contract for a 7.5km section of the A9 between Kincraig and Dalraddy.

The work involves widening an 8km section of single carriageway to a dual carriageway.

“The Scottish government’s ambitious programme for the A9 between Perth and Inverness is now well underway with dualling set to start on this first section shortly and designs now at various stages along the route,” saidScottish cabinet secretary for infrastructure, investment and cities Keith Brown.

“The ground investigations due to start next month between Glen Garry and Dalraddy will also help inform the ongoing design work for the central section of the A9.”

Work on the A9 Kincraig to Dalraddy project will start six months earlier than planned, funded by anticipated savings from the Queensferry Crossing. It marks the first phase in the Scottish government’s £3bn A9 dualling programme.
