Re­tain­ing wall­work be­gins on­theA9

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Mo­torists in High­land Perthshire are set to face two weeks of dis­rup­tion while main­te­nance work is car­ried out.

Es­sen­tial in­ves­ti­ga­tion works on the A9 dual car­riage­way at Kil­le­crankie will be­gin on Mon­day, Septem­ber 18 on the re­tain­ing walls next to the car­riage­way. The work will see in­spec­tions and test­ing of the wall sup­ports to make sure it re­mains safe and se­cure in the fu­ture, and is ex­pected to take around two weeks to com­plete.

Dur­ing these works, there will be tem­po­rary lane clo­sures on both the north­bound and south­bound car­riage­ways through­out the two-week project.

Ed­die Ross, BEAR Scot­land’s north-west rep­re­sen­ta­tive, said: “These works are nec­es­sary to as­sess the con­di­tion of the re­tain­ing walls run­ning ad­ja­cent to the A9 at Kil­liecrankie. Any ar­eas iden­ti­fied as re­quir­ing fur­ther main­te­nance will be noted and works planned into our on­go­ing pro­gramme.

“The lane clo­sures are es­sen­tial to make sure that ev­ery­one is kept safe dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

“Our teams will look to com­plete the works as quickly and safely as pos­si­ble. We en­cour­age mo­torists to plan their jour­neys in ad­vance and check Traf­fic Scot­land for real-time jour­ney in­for­ma­tion.”

Mo­torists are asked to keep up-to-date with the Kil­liecrankie road­works at www.traf­fic­scot­ or on Twit­ter by fol­low­ing @ traf­fic­scot­land.
