Construction of the new multimillion-pound Cross Tay Link Road (CTLR) is now underway with a due completion date of early 2025.
Following a robust procurement process, in August 2021 engineering and construction group BAM Nuttall were awarded the contract for the design and advance works of the project, with site preparation works in advance of the main construction carried out in the first half of 2022.
Funded by Perth & Kinross Council and the Scottish Government via the www.taycities.co.uk Tay Cities Region Deal, the Cross Tay Link Road has been heralded as playing a vital role in the future of Perth and Kinross – both economically and environmentally.
It will involve the construction of a new three-span bridge over the River Tay and a six-kilometre stretch of new carriageway linking the A9 and the A93 to Blairgowrie and the A94, just north of Scone. It also includes the construction of two kilometres of realigned dual carriageway on the A9 just north of the Inveralmond Roundabout.
“It is predicted that the crossing will lead to £966 million of private sector investment in housing and employment”
As well as this, the aim during the build is to be as close to a net zero carbon development as possible, underscoring Perth’s intention to become one of the most sustainable small cities in Europe.
