While in real-life they are four interconnected but independent roads, UK Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2 rendered them as four roads continuing from one another. Specifically, the order from south to north is:
In fact, together with M74 and M90 motorways, as well as the M6 motorway and A14 roads in England, a trucker can possibly travel from Cambridge to Edinburgh (via Birmingham, Carlisle and Glasgow) on effectively one highway.
Although the A80 – M80 – M9 – A9 form a major Scottish route in real-life, truckers might find themselves using the M90 motorway more when doing jobs to / from Aberdeen. The main reason is that a minor road between Edinburgh and Carlisle, which is introduced in Euro Truck Simulator 2, makes travelling to / from Aberdeen via Glasgow longer than routing via Edinburgh.
- In UKTS and ETS 2, part of the road from the eastern terminus of A9 to Aberdeen is still A9 in real-life, but is not explicitly signed as such in-game.
- In ProMod, the A9 is greatly extended north to Thurso, a large town in the extreme northeast of Scotland.
