The A9, like the rest of the trunk road network, is subject to wear and tear and a significant proportion of the maintenance budget is spent addressing this in order to maintain the structural integrity of the roads.

Road condition surveys are undertaken annually to ensure best value is achieved from our trunk road maintenance programme. The A9 Transport Scotland’s Operating Company analyses the information obtained and uses this to plan maintenance works across the route.

Further information on how the maintenance programmes are developed can be found at:
