The Perth Transport Futures Project is a major infrastructure upgrade programme to improve the road network around the city.
The project will address the long-term transportation needs of the area, promote economic growth and address issues of congestion and pollution within the city centre while facilitating active travel options.
Cross Tay Link Road (CTLR)
Phase 2, The Cross Tay Link Road (CTLR) is currently underway with a due completion date of 2025. Work to deliver the CTLR will include the realignment of a portion of the A9 north of Perth, construction of a new bridge over the River Tay and construction of a new link road from the A9 to the A93 and the A94 just north of Scone.
Bertha Park North Link
Springfield have formally notified the Council as per a clause in the Section 75 Agreement that they will not be taking up the option of delivering the section of road between Bertha High School and the new junction forming the end section of the CTLR phase 2. In this regard it will be for the Council to complete the scheme. The Strategic case for the Phase 3 link has already been set out as part of the wider business case for the entire Perth Transport Futures project although further work will be required to develop the design for the link and any associated impacts at a later date. It will be a project that, with other competing priorities, will need to be considered by the Council through the Capital Budget process.
There may occasionally be a requirement for work out with these times. Any proposal for out of hours working will be agreed with Perth & Kinross Council at least two weeks in advance and residents likely to be impacted will be notified. Potential reasons for the need for working out with these hours might include emergency works, elements of the Tay Crossing construction or work on utility service diversions to minimise disruption to the public.
