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.
Initially Transport Scotland had two separate schemes over this length, Killiecrankie to Pitagowan and Pitagowan to Glen Garry, but during the design phase these were combined into one long scheme instead which will be pursued and built as a single work.
This scheme is part of the A9 Dualling Perth to Inverness programme of works.
