North East Trunk Roads

The North East trunk road network serves some of Scotland’s northern major cities including Perth, Dundee and Aberdeen.

In the North East there are busy motorways serving over 35,000 vehicles a day to single lane trunk roads through small towns. The network also operates through nine different regions in the north east of Scotland.

The total length of the North East network is 593km which includes 485 bridges and structures, including Friarton Bridge which carriers the M90 over the River Tay near Perth.
