New Set of A9 Dualling Ground Investigations to Start Next Week

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Monday December 4 2017

As a further sign of progress on the Scottish Government’s ambitious A9 Dualling programme, ground investigations are to start on two sections of the route between Glen Garry and Crubenmore and Dalraddy and Slochd.

The work on the Glen Garry to Crubenmore section is due to get underway on Monday 11 December and will finish up for the festive break on Friday 15 December.

Work will recommence on Wednesday 3 January 2018 and is due to be completed by the end of March 2018.

The work on the Dalraddy to Slochd section is due to get underway on Monday 11 December and will finish up for the festive break on Friday 22 December.

Work will recommence on Monday 8 January 2018 and is due to be completed by the end of March 2018.

Although the vast majority of the work will be carried out away from the existing road and will not require traffic management, some traffic management measures will be required when necessary to allow work beside the carriageway to be carried out safely.

This will include alternate single file traffic sections controlled by temporary traffic signals.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said:

“This further ground investigation work is needed to get important information on the existing ground conditions in the vicinity of the A9 carriageway between Glen Garry and Crubenmore and Dalraddy and Slochd.

“We apologise for any inconvenience these works will cause and would thank road users and local communities in advance for their patience during the works.

“The contractor will closely monitor the operation of the traffic management measures to ensure that delays are kept to a minimum.

“While we do not expect major disruption to traffic, we would ask drivers to plan their journeys in advance using the Traffic Scotland website, twitter feed or Traffic Scotland radio.”
