The A9 Safety Group aims to provide up-to-date and accurate information on Scotland’s longest road.
This site provides a comprehensive overview of the A9, with statistics, route information, driving tips and road campaigns. With an average 142,000 vehicles using the A9 every day, planning a safe and efficient journey is important.
Extensive changes will be taking place on the route over the next few years, with planned dualling due for completion in 2025. Take the initiative and use our route information before your journey.

May 2016 - Performance Data Published
The A9 Safety Group have published the latest performance data for the A9 which includes an analysis of the injury collisions and casualties covering the first 15 months of operation of the cameras from the beginning of November 2014 through to January 2016. The overall summary is that since the cameras were introduced there has been sustained improvements in driver behaviour and a corresponding fall in collisions and casualties as well as additional benefits brought through improved deriver behaviour. The main points from the analysis are:
- The annual average number of fatal casualties between Dunblane and Inverness is down 30% compared to the baseline average
- The number of ‘fatal and serious collisions’ between Dunblane and Inverness is down by almost 44%, with ‘fatal and serious casualties’ down by 60%
- There have been no fatal collisions between Dunblane and Perth and the average number of serious collisions and injuries is down by 82%
- The number of ‘fatal and serious collisions’ between Perth and Inverness is down by almost 31%, with ‘fatal and serious casualties’ down by over 56%
- The number of serious injury casualties between Perth and Inverness is down by 70%
- The number of vehicles exceeding the speed limit remains low, at 1 in 10 compared to the historic benchmark of 1 in 3
- The number of vehicles speeding excessively (more than 10mph above the speed limit) remains low, with a sustained reduction from the historic benchmark figure of 1 in 10 vehicles to 1 in 250
The supporting data continues to evidence a sustained drop in incident frequency and impact which is supporting much more reliable journey times along the route.
