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.

A9 Average Speed Cameras go live on 28th October. Refresh your speed limit knowledge to stay legal and safe when behind the wheel.

Camera Technology

The Average Speed Camera System being deployed on the A9 is the SPECS3 incorporating the Portable Outstation Device.

A9 Average Speed Camera System now operational

On Tuesday 28 October the Average Speed Camera System on the A9 went live.  The camera system is part of a package of measures introduced in a bid to improve safety.

The system will be visible along the A9 from just north of Keir Roundabout (Dunblane) to just south of Raigmore Interchange (Inverness). While this is approximately 136 miles (220 kms) the system will not operate over the entire length.

Our Speed Limit Awareness Campaign launched on Thursday 9th October to refresh A9 road users speed limit knowledge in advance of the new average speed camera system going live on Tuesday 28th October.

Road users should visit the speed limit information page that gives drivers the knowledge required to stay legal and safe, when driving on this route.

More information about the Average Speed Camera System is available here.
