The A9 is to be closed overnight for three nights from this weekend as work begins to erect footbridges ahead of the Solheim Cup.
Work will begin at 8pm on Sunday and last until 6am the following morning, with closures also taking place on Monday and Tuesday nights.
The footbridges will allow thousands of spectators arriving at Gleneagles Train Station to access the golf course at Auchterarder.
Similar temporary footbridges were installed during the 2014 Ryder Cup, which allowed for safe access across the busy A9 for thousands of spectators.
The A9 will then be closed for a further two nights in September while the bridges are removed.
Local diversions will be provided between the Gleneagles and Auchterarder junctions of the A9 during the closure.
Andy Thompson, Bear Scotland’s North East unit representative, said: “The 2019 Solheim Cup will see people travel from all over Scotland and beyond to experience one of the biggest golfing events on the sporting calendar and these works will ensure thousands of spectators can access the 2019 Solheim Cup at Gleneagles safely.
“The use of these temporary footbridges will reduce disruption to motorists and provide convenient access between the golf course and train station.
“For everyone’s safety, it will be necessary to close the A9 in both directions while the bridges and barriers are being installed and subsequently removed after the event, with teams working to complete operations as quickly and safely as possible.”
