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 User Survey Findings Published

The findings of an impartial survey into the attitudes and behaviour of A9 users towards the average speed camera system has been published. The key finding is that average speed cameras have been broadly recognised as a positive safety measure by A9 road users.

The survey is the second part of independent research carried out following the introduction of the cameras in October 2014. The study repeated the survey undertaken before the installation of the cameras and covered a wide spectrum of drivers with the questions directly related to driver behaviour, frustration and experience of driving on the A9.

Around 70% of those surveyed stated they felt safer with the cameras, that they were less likely to speed and that they felt less likely to be involved in an accident.
