A1

The A1 is the longest road in the UK and runs through England and Scotland, starting in London and stretching all the way to Edinburgh. It is part of the larger A1(M) motorway, which was built in 1959 to improve safety and reduce congestion.

Over the years, the A1 has become a major route for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) and long-distance travel. This can result in congestion and higher risks of collisions. As a result, the UK Department for Transport has implemented various initiatives, such as variable speed limits and the introduction of smart motorways, to improve the road networks safety.

According to the latest figures released by the Department for Transport, there were 83 fatalities and 1,306 serious injuries on the A1 between November 2016 and October 2017. This represents a 36% reduction in fatalities and a 13% reduction in serious injuries compared to the previous year. Over the same period, there were 418 recorded incidents, meaning that the A1 is one of the safest roads in the UK.
