Fully funded PhD: Balancing socio-economic and environmental changes resulting from the dualling of the A9
Centre for Mountain Studies (CMS), Perth College
The A9 is a major transport corridor and the ‘gateway’ to the Highlands. It is currently being widened, to have two lanes from Perth to Inverness. This dualling project, due for completion by 2025, will considerably increase the number of people visiting sites important for recreation and tourism. Many of these sites are within the Cairngorms National Park (CNP) and of high conservation value, and sensitive to disturbance.
This project will investigate:
1) the benefits of the development for rural communities in terms of increased business opportunities
2) the potential impacts of a growing tourist economy on the valued ecosystems/biodiversity of the CNP.
