Raeburn ready to start on A9 ground investigation

Transport Scotland has announced that Raeburn Drilling and Geotechnical will start work on a ground investigation contract “worth close to a million pounds” on the A9 next Monday.

The two month long investigation will focus on the 7.5km Kincraig to Dalraddy section of the A9 upgrade which will lead to improvements over a 129km length of the route between Perth and Inverness.

Scottish transport minister Keith Brown said: “The A9 Dualling programme is the most expensive transport project in Scotland’s history and presents some of the most challenging work ever witnessed.

“The stretch of the route between Kincraig and Dalraddy will be the first section to be dualled in this ambitious programme, and we expect to see construction starting in 2015/16. These detailed ground investigations are an important element of the procurement process for this scheme which I expect to see completed in 2017.”
