CTLR Updates

Work continues to progress on the Cross Tay Link Road project; the following update is issued at June 27th 2024.

New Kingsway Link Road
Work on the New Kingsway Link Road has delivered a number of key elements this month with traffic signs, street lighting, vehicle safety barriers, and landscaping nearing completion between the A93 and A94 roundabouts.

Upgrade works on the existing Stormontfield Road are now complete. As a reminder, moving forward, Stormontfield Road will remain closed to vehicular traffic, allowing access to residential properties and Scone Palace only. The route will remain open for pedestrians and cyclists.

Surfacing has progressed well throughout June and we anticipate that remaining works on signage and verge finishes will complete next period.

The Green Bridge at Highfield is also near to completion with only final touches to landscaping, fencing and pathways to come. Once finished, the connection between the new road and Highfield Woods will come into play for active travel users and wildlife.

Destiny Bridge
The west abutment stem wall (located immediately west of the Highland Railway line), the east abutment foundation, and the abutment stem wall (end support) construction are all now complete.

The construction of the balanced cantilever reinforced concrete bridge deck segments is well underway with thirty-eight segments complete. The careful construction sequence used has ensured perfect balance is maintained throughout the process. The bridge is currently forecast to be completed in 2024.

The earthworks and drainage along the old A9 route continues and the drainage for the new Park-and-Choose area is now completed.

The A9 overbridge superstructure, finishing works including kerbing, ducting and hard landscaping, and surfacing works on adjacent roundabouts are also all complete.

The reinforced earth approach embankment to the west side of Destiny Bridge is ongoing. This will connect the new A9 junction to the new bridge over the River Tay. Piling works and the pile cap (foundation) is completed and the Denmarkfield Access Portal has recently been installed which will maintain through access for local properties, cyclists, and pedestrians.

Cyclists and pedestrians have temporarily been diverted from the A9 onto the existing riverside core path, enabling works to progress here safely.
