Road users in the strath heading south or back north are being advised that a new plant crossing will soon be in operation as part of the Luncarty to Pass of Birnam A9 dualling project.
The new addition will be made at the C569 Strathford Station Road near its junction with the Inverness-Perth road from March 18 in Perthshire and run for around six months.
A Balfour Beatty spokesperson said: "Two-way temporary traffic signals will be in place to manage the interface between road users and site traffic crossing the road at this location.
"This will allow materials to be safely transported on the construction site haul road, keeping site vehicles off the public road network.
Motion-controlled traffic signals will be in operation between 7.30am and 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturdays with priority given to road users.
The spokesperson said: "Operatives will be in place to monitor and maintain the crossing. Road users are advised to approach the plant crossing with care.
"We would like to thank motorists for their patience whilst we continue with these important works."
Anyine with any questions about this, or any other part of the project, should contact the contractor's community liaison team on 0800 1937313 or by email: A9L2B@balfourbeatty.com
