A9/A96 Inshes-Smithton 25 August 2018
Construction of a new single two-lane road between the A9 at Inshes, south-east of Inverness, and the A96 at Smithton. When the A96 dualling scheme is complete, the new road will connect at one of the improved A96's interchanges.
The road is designed to open up land for development to the east of Inverness and reduce reliance on the A9 and A96 for local journeys in this area. It is being taken forward by Transport Scotland, but will almost certainly be a local authority road when complete.
A9 Longman Junction improvement 2 August 2018
Reconstruction of Longman Roundabout, the junction of the A9 and A82 north-east of Inverness, to provide a grade-separated junction and allow the A9 to flow uninterrupted through the interchange.
No specific layout has been selected yet, but options under consideration include a grade-separated roundabout interchange and a simpler diamond interchange.
A737 Improvements at Beith 28 August 2017
Reconstruction of the southern half of the A737 Beith Bypass to replace the existing sub-standard road with a new bypass on an improved alignment. The new road will diverge from the existing at an enlarged Manrahead Roundabout to the south of the town and run to the east of the existing bypass, with a climbing lane northbound and a gentler gradient than at present.
A9 Tomatin to Moy 15 August 2017
Upgrade of the existing single carriageway A9 to provide a dual two-lane road between the northern end of the existing dual carriageway at Tomatin and the point it resumes west of Moy. This is the northernmost component of the wider A9 dualling programme and connects the existing dual carriageway at Slochd to the existing section leading north to Inverness itself.
A9 Dalraddy to Slochd 15 August 2017
Upgrade of the existing single carriageway A9 to provide a dual two-lane road from Dalraddy, close to Loch Alvie, past Aviemore to the southern end of the existing dual carriageway at Slochd. This scheme is the largest single section in the A9 dualling programme, providing 25 km (15.5 miles) of new dual carriageway in one go.
A9 Crubenmore to Kincraig 15 August 2017
Upgrade of the existing single carriageway A9 to provide a dual two-lane road between the northern end of the existing short dual carriageway at Crubenmore and a point just west of Kincraig, a distance of 16 km (10 miles).
This is one of the more complex parts of the wider strategy to provide continuous dual carriageway from Perth to Inverness, requiring several new grade separated junctions to serve settlements along its route, and duplication of the seven-span bridge across the River Spey.
A9 Dalwhinnie to Crubenmore 15 August 2017
Upgrade of the existing single carriageway A9 to dual two-lane road from the junction with the A889 at Dalwhinnie to the southern end of the existing dual carriageway at Crubenmore. This 11 km (6.8 mile) section forms part of a wider programme to upgrade the A9 to dual carriageway between Perth and Inverness.
A9 Glen Garry to Dalwhinnie 15 August 2017
Upgrade of the existing single carriageway A9 to provide a dual two-lane road between the north end of the existing dual carriageway at Glen Garry and the A889 at Dalwhinnie. The work will form part of a wider programme that aims to dual the A9 all the way from Perth to Inverness.
A9 Killiecrankie to Glen Garry 15 August 2017
Upgrade of the existing single carriageway A9 to dual two-lane road between the end of the existing short dual carriageway south of Killiecrankie and the start of the next dual carriageway section at Glen Garry. This scheme will provide 22km (15 miles) of upgraded road, over which distance there are relatively few access points. The difficulty of this scheme will be the exposed and remote nature of the works, and the rocky terrain through which the road passes.
A9 Pitlochry to Killiecrankie 15 August 2017
Upgrade of the existing single carriageway A9 to a dual two-lane road between the end of the existing dual carriageway south of Pitlochry and the start of the next significant dual carriageway section south of Killiecrankie. The scheme will form part of a wider programme of works to dual the A9 all the way from Perth to Inverness.
A9 Tay Crossing to Ballinluig 15 August 2017
Upgrade of the existing single carriageway A9 to a dual two-lane road between the Tay Crossing near Dunkeld and the existing dual carriageway at Ballinluig. The scheme is part of a wider programme of works to upgrade the whole A9 to dual carriageway between Perth and Inverness.
This section runs along the east bank of the river Tay and the design accommodates for the fact that the road runs in part on flood plain. Measures are also being taken to alleviate the risk of landslides on the southern part of the scheme, where this has been a problem in the past.
A9 Birnam to Tay Crossing 14 August 2017
Upgrade of the existing single-carriageway A9 between the end of the dual carriageway at Pass of Birnam and the bridge across the Tay near Dunkeld. The upgrade will provide dual two-lane carriageways as part of the wider programme of works to dual the whole A9 between Perth and Inverness.
A9 Luncarty to Pass of Birnam 14 August 2017
Upgrade of the existing A9 single carriageway between Luncarty and Pass of Birnam to provide dual two-lane carriageways. At present this 9.5 km (5.9 mile) section of the A9 lies between two existing sections of dual two-lane road, at the south end running from Luncarty to Perth and at the north end a short overtaking section through Pass of Birnam. When the scheme is finished the dual carriageway will be continuous from Perth to Birnam.
A9 Kincraig to Dalraddy 14 August 2017
Cross Tay Link Road 28 May 2017
Construction of a new single two-lane road to the north of Perth, linking the A9 to the A93 and A94 with a new crossing of the River Tay.
The road will connect to the A9 at a new grade-separated junction north of Inveralmond. To the east, it will cross the Tay and curve around the north of the city, with junctions at Stormontfield Road and the A93 before terminating at a signalised junction on the A94. To the west, it will loop around to Ruthvenfield to rejoin the A9 at another new junction. This western part will open up new land for development.
M74 J5 Improvement 23 May 2017
Reconstruction of the existing interchange at M74 J5, which at present is a simple grade-separated roundabout. A new underpass 625 metres (683 yards) in length will allow the A725 to bypass the roundabout, with existing approaches to the roundabout becoming links from the new dual carriageway. The A725 will be realigned over a total length of 1.8 Km (1.1 miles).
A9 Dunblane - Inverness 23 May 2017
Work to improve the A9 between Dunblane and Inverness, including provision of new overtaking lanes and extension of the dual carriageway section at Crubenmore.
This scheme was eventually superceded by the wider A9 Dualling project which is documented elsewhere on Roads.org.uk.
