A9 road users are advised to take care on approach to the A9 Dualling Luncarty to Pass of Birnam project as changes to the traffic management layout take effect from Tuesday 23 February 2021.
Traffic will be switched to a section of newly constructed carriageway between the Luncarty Junction and the new Stanley/Tullybelton Junction, overnight on Monday 22 February 2021, with a new traffic management arrangement in place from 6 AM on Tuesday 23 February 2021.
Prior to the switch, overnight temporary traffic signals will be required on the A9 on Monday 22 February 2021, between 7:30 PM and 6 AM.
This will allow the removal of temporary barriers, relocation of site access points and alteration of the traffic management layout to guide road users on to the new carriageway.
Road users are reminded that traffic will remain in single carriageway configuration following the traffic switch.
Similarly, the current no overtaking and 40 mph speed restrictions remain in place and will continue to be enforced by Police Scotland and average speed cameras.
Following this traffic switch, road users will utilise the newly constructed A9 southbound carriageway for the entire 9.5 km journey through the project site.
In addition, overnight temporary traffic signals will be required at the northern extent of the project, between Coltrannie overbridge and Gelly overbridge, for up to five nights, commencing Monday 22 February 2021, between 7:30 PM and 6 AM each night, to remove temporary barriers.
The planned traffic management is weather dependent and subject to change, therefore, please refer to the Traffic Scotland website or twitter for live traffic up-dates.
