The A9 Trunk Road is the main route that connects central Scotland and the Highlands. It stretches from Dunblane, situated north of Stirling, and travels north bypassing Perth and Inverness before finishing in Thurso.

The route is made up of single and dual carriageways with varying speed limits. It carries a broad mix of road users comprising local drivers, commuters, freight transport and tourist traffic. The A9 Safety Group was set up by Transport Scotland as a multi-agency group to reduce fatal and serious road traffic accidents on the route. The main aim of the A9 Safety Group before and during the A9 dualling programme is to work together with our partners to explore any measures which could be introduced on the route using engineering, enforcement, education and encouragement to positively influence driver behaviour to help reduce road casualties.

Please let us know if you have any trunk road defects you would like to report.

Public Information Exhibitions

The A9 Safety Group held six public information exhibitions outlining the proposals included in the A9 Interim Safety Plan. These exhibitions were held at locations spread across the route.
