Balfour Beatty has won a £62m deal to carry out dualling work on the A9 in Scotland.

The deal between Luncarty, just outside Perth, to Birnam six miles away is part of Transport for Scotland’s £3bn investment to convert the 80 mile road between Perth and Inverness into dual carriageway.

In addition to building new dual carriageway, work will involve four new overbridges to maintain local access across the A9, the widening of one existing underbridge and the provision of a new side road bridge.
