The M9 motorway is a 25-mile stretch of dual carriageway which connects the Edinburgh City Bypass in Scotland to the M8 at Bannockburn, both ends lying in the City of Edinburgh. The section between Junction 1, south of Edinburgh, and Junction 5, west of Falkirk, was opened in 1965, linking Scotland's two largest cities, Glasgow and Edinburgh. Further sections between Junction 5 and Junction 9, west of Stirling, opened in 1968, followed by the section between Junction 9 and Junction 11, west of Dunblane and Bridge of Allan, in 1985. The final section between Junction 11 and Junction 1 opened in 1991.

In terms of safety statistics, the M9 motorway has seen a steady decrease in the number of casualties since its opening over several decades. In 1998, there were 472 casualties reported, with 14 fatalities. This number has slowly dropped over the years, with 2015 seeing 215 casualties, of which 8 were fatalities. Since 2014 the M9 motorway has seen a 17% reduction in fatalities and 24% reduction in casualties overall.
