Retaining wallwork begins ontheA9
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.”
