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.

Performance Data for A9 and the Average Speed Cameras Published
The first set of data illustrating how speed cameras have influenced driver behaviour on the A9 between Dunblane and Inverness has been published.
The A9 average speed camera system and 50mph HGV pilot both went live on October 28th 2014, although the installation process started in the summer. Initial performance analysis of the route for the first quarter (October-January) is now available and coincides with the first release by Police Scotland of the number of detections by the average speed cameras in this period.
The main findings show:
- The camera system detected 298 vehicles exceeding the speed limit which warranted further action, this is less than 4 per day.
- Overall speeding is down from around one in three drivers to one in twenty
- Examples of excessive speeding (10 mph+ above limit) are down by 97 per cent
- Journey times have increased in line with predictions
- Journey time reliability has improved
- There is no evidence that drivers are avoiding the A9
- Feedback from hauliers suggests a significant reduction in journey times for HGVs
