Motorists in the strath heading south are being warned about three overnight closures of the A9 north of Perth later this month.

The closures will be between Luncarty Junction and the A923 Dunkeld Junction both northbound and southbound.

The section will be shut from July 29 to July 31 from 8.30pm to 6am.

The A9 will be closed overnight later this month.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said: "These closures are required to safely lift and instal the precast concrete beams that will form the deck of the overbridge at the new Stanley/Tullybelton junction.

"A crane will be used to lift the beams into place over the existing A9 carriageway.

"The planned closures of the A9 have been scheduled overnight to minimise the impact to road users following consultation with key stakeholders including Police Scotland, BEAR Scotland and Perth and Kinross Council.

"All A9 traffic should follow the signed diversion routes.

"Following the installation of the beams over the main carriageway, a further series of smaller beams will be installed on the east side span of the structure overnight on August 2.

"These works can be completed whilst keeping the road open, however, we will require to stop the traffic in both directions on a number of occasions for up to 15 minutes whilst beams are lifted and secured adjacent to the A9.

"As soon as each beam has been secured, traffic will be released.

"This work will take place between 8.30pm and 6am."
