Phase 2: The Cross Tay Link Road (CTLR)
The Cross Tay Link Road (CTLR) is the central element of the Perth Transport Futures Project.
The CTLR is the biggest infrastructure project ever undertaken by Perth & Kinross Council. It will involve the construction of a new 3-span bridge over the River Tay and a six kilometre stretch of new carriageway linking the A9 and the A93 to Blairgowrie and the A94, just north of Scone. It also includes the construction of two kilometres of realigned dual carriageway on the A9 just north of the Inveralmond Roundabout.
The project will improve the local transport network and traffic flow, and reduce journey times. It will also enhance pedestrian and cycle safety, increase network capacity as well as significantly reducing traffic congestion and related pollution in Perth city centre.
The project is being delivered by engineering and construction group BAM Nuttall (BAM).
Planning permission for the project was granted in 2019 and the approved planning application can be viewed here and a map of the development can be viewed here.
