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.

Overtaking Campaign

Earlier this year the A9 Safety Group ran an overtaking campaign highlighting the dangers that a wrongly planned overtake can present. This is particularly relevant to the A9 with over 40% of fatal accidents on single carriageway sections involving overtaking.

The subsequent evaluation found nearly one-third of regular drivers along the A9 were aware of the overtaking campaign with over 60% of these respondents motivated by the information they received.

To remind on the dangers of overtaking the campaign is being run again during August on radio and online. See our safe overtaking tips above for further information.
