Halcrow and Jacobs win A9 Scottish transport contract

Transport Scotland has appointed consultants Halcrow and Jacobs to develop plans to dual a 128km stretch of the A9 between Perth and Inverness.

Halcrow will produce a preliminary strategic environmental assessment and Jacobs will work on preliminary engineering designs.

Plans for the £3bn project were unveiled in December 2011and it is expected that project will be completed by 2025.

“This £3bn complex and challenging programme will be one of the biggest infrastructure projects in Scotland’s history and will ensure safer roads, less congestion and a better quality of life for road users and local communities,” said Transport minister Keith Brown.
