A construction tender for a 9.5km section of the A9 between Luncarty and Birnam in Scotland has been announced in a prior information notice, with work on the £100M scheme expected to start by the end of this year.
An official notice of the upcoming tender will follow in the next few weeks from Transport Scotland. In a separate development on the £3bn A9 dualling scheme, the preferred routes for the 24km Dalraddy to Slochd scheme, designed by an Atkins/Mouchel JV, and the 16km Crubenmore to Kincraig scheme are now open for public viewing.
Contractors are still being sought to carry out advanced works for most of the 11 dualling schemes across the entire £3bn route, which covers 129km in total from Inverness to Perth. The Kincraig to Dalraddy route will be the first of the schemes to finish, opening this summer.
“The range of activity and work underway to deliver the A9 Dualling Programme is tangible evidence of our commitment to upgrade this important road linking central Scotland to the Highlands and Islands,” said Scotland’s economy secretary Keith Brown.
“We are making significant strides and remain on target to deliver our ambitious A9 Dualling Programme by 2025.”
