A9 Contraflow Phase 1 Complete
Important Traffic Management Update re A9 Contraflow Works
Following the announcement last week regarding works due to commence on the northbound A9 contraflow between Inveralmond Roundabout and Luncarty, BAM Nuttall and PKC have issued an important notice regarding night-time working.
“In order to facilitate the smooth transition from existing contraflow works to the new A9 road alignment on the northbound lanes, there will be nighttime working by BAM Nuttall operatives on three consecutive nights:
- Friday 23rd June
- Saturday 24th June
- Sunday 25th June
“We are asking drivers to be extra vigilant at this time.
“Phase two of the contraflow will commence on Monday 26th June, with an expected completion date of Thursday 3rd August. For full details on these works, please see below.
We are pleased to announce that the first phase of contraflow works on the A9 is now almost complete.
Tying in the existing road with the realigned A9, the contraflow forms part of the works associated with the new interchange located between Inveralmond Roundabout and Luncarty, linking the new bridge over the River Tay.
With the first phase now nearing completion, phase two will commence on Monday 26th June when traffic will be moved, again under contraflow, onto the new A9 road alignment on the northbound lanes.
Phase two will include the closure of the southbound slip road from Luncarty. During this time diversion signs will be in place to direct traffic up to the Stanley junction so that traffic can access the A9 there. A shuttle bus service will also be in place to ensure public transport provision is maintained.
William Diver, BAM Nuttall Project Director, commented, “We fully appreciate the inconvenience caused to motorists during this period and I am pleased to report that the contraflow works are running to schedule, with an expected completion date of 3rd August 2023, two weeks earlier than initially expected.
“I would like to assure all road users that the team is committed to ensuring that phase two of the contraflow runs as smoothly, with as little disruption as is possible to motorists and local residents.”
Councillor Grant Laing, Leader of Perth & Kinross Council, commented, “The Cross Tay Link Road is key to the Perth Transport Futures Project, and will deliver massive benefits for the people of Perth and Kinross by increasing network capacity and reducing congestion in Perth city.
“Projects of this scale do not come along often, and it is credit to everyone involved that these works are progressing on schedule and that the contraflow works are expected to be completed within a few weeks.
