What’s happening on site

The official opening of the A9/A85 Crieff Road to Bertha Park project took place on Friday 1 February 2019 with representatives from Perth & Kinross Council, Balfour Beatty and Scape Procure taking part in the opening ceremony.

Although the road is now fully open to the public, there are still some ongoing works taking place including landscaping, fencing and signing in various areas throughout the site. Work is also continuing on completing the new ladeside path which will link the new footbridge over the A9 with Ruthvenfield village and the new link road.

Fencing works and landscaping are still taking place here, as well as lighting to the new pedestrian underpass. Minor snagging works will continue throughout the site in the coming weeks.
