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 Performance Data Published
The latest performance data for the A9 has been published. The data covers the period up to 20 April 2015 and is the second data set to be published since the introduction of the average speed cameras and 50mph HGV pilot on 28 October 2014. It also follows the publication of the findings of an impartial survey into the attitudes and behaviour of A9 users towards the cameras.
The data continues to show a positive reaction in terms of driver behaviour and demonstrates high compliance levels with the speed limits. While there has been a slight rise in the speed profile along the route this is not unexpected and mirrors the experience of the A77. The impact of the system on drivers travelling at more than 10mph above the speed limit has been maintained, with an overall reduction of over 95% from the benchmark figure established before the cameras were introduced.
The frequency and impact of incidents continues to show a declining trend and journey times have stabilised within the predicted range against a rising traffic volume on the A9.
