I heard about the tragic accident on the A9 near Blair Atholl in the early hours of today and the deaths of the two lorry drivers involved. My interest in this is trivial compared to those directly affected and I am truly saddened by their loss. However, for the rest of us at least, life's mundane practicalities go on and I've family who want to make their way North to Inverness this afternoon (in their car). I also hear that the road has been closed, for the foreseeable, while an investigation is conducted.
Does anyone on here know if the A9 is open again yet or, if not, when it might be so?
There was talk of a diversion too, but some of the options spoken of seem to be in the region of 120miles long, is that correct?
