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.

February 2017 - Performance Data
The A9 Safety Group have published the latest performance data for the A9. The latest data set contains collision and casualty data up to October 2016 along with other performance data up to December 2016. The report supports previous updates that there continues to be a sustained improvement in driver behaviour and a corresponding fall in collisions and casualties. Fatal casualties along the A9 corridor within the monitoring area have dropped by over 37% and serious injury casualties by 45% when compared with the equivalent benchmark period. This report also identifies significant reductions in the number of drivers detected speeding when compared to enforcement figures before the cameras were installed. This significantly increased level of compliance again supports the change in driver behaviour now evident on the route. The main points from the data monitoring are:
- The number of fatal casualties between Dunblane and Inverness is down by over 37% compared to the baseline average
- The number of serious injury casualties between Dunblane and Inverness is down by almost 45%
- The overall number of casualties of all classes between Dunblane and Inverness is down by over 37%
- The significantly reduced number of vehicles exceeding the speed limit continues to be sustained
- The number of vehicles detected by the ASC system which were considered by Police Scotland for further action has remained constant at an extremely low average level of around 11 per day (less than 0.03% of the overall volume of vehicles using the route).
Journey time reliability remained consistent across the route during the reporting period.
