A new 7.5km (4.6 mile) dual carriageway section of the A9 between Kincraig and Dalraddy in Scotland has opened.

All remaining traffic restrictions were lifted early on the morning of Saturday, September 30. The 40mph speed limit was also lifted on the £35m road.

Opening the road splits up what was the largest section of single carriageway between Perth and Inverness.

The Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Jobs and Fair Work, Keith Brown, said: “This project will open up our country for trade and tourism, delivering significant economic benefits.”
