Construction work on the Cross Tay Link Road (CTLR) requires a temporary diversion to Highfield track north of Scone.

A popular access route to the path network of Highfield Plantation, the track will be diverted for a period of ten days from Monday, September 5.

The diversion is required to allow Scottish Water to realign a mains water pipe to allow construction of the new CTLR.

Main contractor BAM Nuttall are currently undertaking major earthworks on site as part of the main build.

The Cross Tay Link Road project involves the construction of a new 3-span bridge over the River Tay and six kilometres of new road linking the A9 and the A93 to Blairgowrie and the A94 north of Scone. It also includes the realignment of two kilometres of dual carriageway on the A9 just north of Inveralmond Roundabout.

The new road will significantly reduce traffic congestion and related pollution in Perth city centre, and open up areas for sustainable development.

The CTLR is Phase 2 of the Perth Transport Futures Project to improve traffic flows and active travel opportunities in and around the city. For further information please visit www.perthtransportfutures
