It's main purpose was to make the case for crossing those three firths,
as opposed to improving the original road folllowing the coast.
However it also highlighted the dangers of the A9 road in it entirety.
The photos give examples of places were frequent accidents occurred.
Blind bends under bridges where large vehicles were forced to use the middle of the road, tight zig zag bends and unnecessary "killing curves".
A9, just north of Slochd.
A9, just south of Slochd
These above photos speak for themselves.
A9, the Bridge at Moy with 14 ft. headroom which, with the Dunkeld Bridge,
limits the road's carrying capacity.
A9, the bridge at Kinveachy which loads have to take in the centre blocking the road.
A9, the crossing at Dalnagarry.
A9, part of the curves by Loch Moy.
The two photos above are examples of unnecessary curves - killing curves.
