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.

Casualty Performance Data Published
The A9 Safety Group have published the latest performance data for the A9 which includes an analysis of the injury collisions and casualties covering the first 12 months of operation of the cameras from the beginning of November 2014 through to October 2015. These figures are very encouraging at this stage in the project and demonstrate significant casualty reductions with the supporting data now confirming a sustained improvement in driver behaviour on the A9. The main points from the analysis are:
- Two fewer people have been killed and 16 fewer people have been seriously injured between Dunblane and Inverness
- The number of ‘fatal and serious collisions’ between Dunblane and Inverness is down by almost 59 per cent, with ‘fatal and serious casualties’ down by approximately 64 per cent
- No one was killed or seriously injured between Dunblane and Perth
- The number of ‘fatal and serious collisions’ between Perth and Inverness is down by almost 45 per cent, with ‘fatal and serious casualties’ down by almost 58 per cent
- There were no fatal collisions anywhere on the A9 between July & December 2015, the first time this has occurred since the road was upgraded in the late 1970’s.
The supporting data continues to evidence a sustained drop in speeding overall and in those drivers exceeding the speed limit by more than 10 mph. Incident frequency and impact has dropped significantly which is supporting much more reliable journey times along the route.
A 3 year before and after period will be used to assess the effectiveness of the cameras although the A9 Safety Group will continue to actively monitor the performance of the route and consider other measures if appropriate.
