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.

Latest Performance Data Published
The A9 Safety Group have published the latest performance data covering the first 9 months of operation of the cameras. This report also incorporates details of accidents and casualties recorded in the first six months (October 14 – March 15).
These most recent figures continue to demonstrate the improved driver behaviour on the A9 between Dunblane and Inverness with the average speed cameras delivering compliance levels in excess of 99.96 per cent. While Police Scotland have reported a slight rise in offender numbers in the latest figures, average speed technology continues to demonstrate that it is the most effective measure in delivering significant reductions in speeding along the route.
The initial data on the recorded casualties is very encouraging with the number of fatal and serious casualties between Dunblane and Inverness down by 50 per cent when compared to the average for the same period between 2011-2013. There have also been substantial reductions in the number of injury accidents and the number of casualties overall.
There has been an increase in the number of fatal casualties between Perth & Inverness in the monitoring period which is concerning, with the Group actively looking at the causes to determine what other intervention measures may be appropriate to further improve safety on the route.
The other performance figures are indicating that compared with the established baselines, journey times have stabilised, overall incident numbers are down and traffic continues to grow along the route.
