Transport Minister opens £2.7 million Carrbridge upgrade

Local communities in and around Carrbridge will gain real benefits from a £2.7 million improvement package to ease congestion and improve safety, Transport Minister Stewart Stevenson said today.

This significant maintenance scheme, which lasted 12 weeks, involved constructing a new northbound overtaking lane, along the Carrbridge stretch of the A9.

Stewart Stevenson, Transport Minister said:

“This £2.7 million investment will make a real difference to the communities along this stretch of the A9 .“

“By providing overtaking lanes this scheme will help relieve local congestion as well as improving safety for drivers.

“This project is one of a number of key investments we are taking forward as we invest progressively in the A9 on a continuing basis, leading to a dualling the A9 between Perth and Inverness.

Projects like this give a vital boost to the construction industry in Scotland, helping our hard pressed construction workers in this challenging economic climate."

This section of trunk road provides a key link to the north of Scotland, carrying around 7,500 vehicles a day. Transport Scotland and Scotland TranServ worked closely together to minimise the impact on traffic.
