Twin temporary footbridges will be installed over the A9 at Gleneagles to allow spectators arriving at Gleneagles train station to access the golf course.

Those arriving by car will be directed by 17 glowing electronic portable variable message signs placed at strategic locations to keep congestion to a minimum.
