A series of public events will be held ahead of the next stage of the Scottish Government’s £3 billion A9 dualling project.
Balfour Beatty, the firm responsible for the design and construction of the Luncarty to Pass of Birnam stretch, want to give locals the chance to learn about work that is due to get under way in the coming months.
Events will be held in Bankfoot Church Centre next Monday, Stanley Village Hall on December 10 and Luncarty Church Centre the following day.
The informal drop-in sessions will provide residents with the opportunity to view the contractor’s plans for the new road layout and provide an overview of the scheduled construction works.
Senior team members from Balfour Beatty, Atkins and Jacobs, as well as representatives from Transport Scotland, will be on hand to answer questions about the £96 million phase.
Alan Brisbane, Balfour Beatty project manager, said: “These community-focused events are being held in preparation for works beginning in earnest in January 2019, and will provide an opportunity for us to share key elements of the scheme with local people.
“The events will cover various topics including: traffic management; environment and ecology; our programme of works; and our plans for community and stakeholder engagement.”
He added: “We are committed to keeping both local residents and road users informed.”
The work will create a continuous 15km dual carriageway from Inveralmond Roundabout to Pass of Birnam.
