Plans To Widen A9 To Go Ahead

The Scottish government said it was pressing ahead with long delayed plans to dual more of the A9 trunk road between Perth and Inverness, with a £150m construction contract notice expected to be awarded next summer, writes Chris Tindall.

The project to dual Scotland’s longest road can be traced back to 2008 when the government said improvement works were a priority on a route that was suffering from a lot of accidents.

But since then only around 11 miles of the 273-mile A9 has been upgraded, with the planned further 80 miles still to be done.

Earlier this year, the government admitted the vital upgrade would not be completed on target once again and blamed procurement processes, the pandemic, Brexit and spiralling inflation for the delays.
