Tenders invited for A9 upgrade
The Scottish Government has issued a tender notice for an upgrade of the A9 north of Crubenmore, officially the most dangerous road in the country.

It will see two miles of the key north/south route upgraded to dual carriageway standard in a bid to reduce journey times to the Highlands and improve road safety and is the latest phase in a rolling programme of improvements..

At present the route features sections of dual carriageway interspersed with long stretches of single carriageway, making overtaking difficult and contributing to a number of fatalities.

The tender process should finish by autumn this year with work completing by late 2011.
