Ground investigation begins on A9 dualling project

Geotechnical contractor Environmental Scientifics Group has begun ground investigation works on Transport for Scotland’s £3bn A9 dualling project.

Work is expected to take four months and will be completed well before start of construction in 2017.

“This is a momentous moment as ground works get underway on this 80 mile upgrade,” said Scottish finance secretary John Swinney.

“This will be one of the infrastructure projects in Scotland’s history and I am delighted that the Scottish Government is delivering on this commitment [to] dual the A9 between Perth and Inverness by 2025.”
