A9 Dunblane

This page has been archived. For information on live or future events and roadworks view our travel news.

Please be advised, that these works have no been extended from the 7th January until the 29th February.

A full overnight closure of the southbound carriageway of the A9 will be in operation between Keir roundabout and the B8033 (to the northwest of Dunblane) for three nights from Monday 12th February until Wednesday 14th February.

The closure will be in place between 10pm and 5am each night, with the final closure being lifted at 5am on Thursday 15th February.

The northbound carriageway will remain open to traffic.

Southbound traffic will be diverted from the A9 via the B8033 through Dunblane to rejoin the A9 at Keir roundabout.

These measures are being implemented to ensure the safety of the workforce and travelling public and allow the safe construction of a concrete barrier at the B8033 overbridge.

Amey is undertaking phase two of a £1.3 million project improving road safety on 1.6 miles of the A9 at Dunblane from Sunday 7th January 2024 to Friday 16th February 2024.


The project will see improvements made to 1.6 miles (2.6km) of the vehicle barrier restraint systems on the central reserve of the A9 at Dunblane, between the A820 overbridge and Glassingall.


The work, which Amey is completing on behalf of Transport Scotland, will benefit more than 31,000 vehicles who use this route each day.


The overnight work to upgrade the barrier restraint system is taking place in two phases.


Phase One - Sunday 26th November to Friday 22nd December.

Phase Two – Sunday 7th January 2024 to Friday 16th February 2024.


During both phases work will take place overnight between 7.30pm-6.30am from Sunday to Thursday each week.


To ensure the safety of roadworkers and motorists northbound and southbound offside lane closures will be implemented during working hours, with a reduced speed limit of 30mph in place.


Traffic management will be lifted each morning at 6.30am before being put back in place each night at 7.30pm.


Please note, all schemes are weather dependent and may be cancelled or rescheduled if weather conditions are not favourable.
