The Prior Information Notice (PIN) for the construction contract for the 9.5km section between Luncarty to Birnam has been published with work to deliver this £100 million scheme expected to start by the end of this year. A Contract Notice is expected to follow in the coming weeks.
Design work also continues apace across the rest of the route between Perth and Inverness with a series of exhibitions starting today. The public are invited to view the preferred routes for the 24km Dalraddy to Slochd and 16km Crubenmore to Kincraig schemes – a further 40km of the A9 dualling programme.
Work is also underway to identify contractors to carry out a series of advanced works across the entire route in preparation for future construction. These opportunities are expected to be of particular interest to small to medium sized businesses including those based locally who would like to be part of this innovative and ambitious programme.
