        Since the Scottish Government through Transport Scotland is responsible for the maintenance and development of both the A9 and A85, this Council should make the strongest possible representations to the Scottish Government that they should meet the cost of the A9/A85 junction to enable the Council to undertake other crucial infrastructure programmes, such as the Cross Tay Link Road, to support the economic growth of Perth and Kinross.
