This is an interesting document detailing a proposal to extend the A1 to John O Groats (via the A9) and the A6 to Inverness (via the A74 and A82), amongst a whole host of other changes across Scotland. As you should be aware, even where the annotations say Agreed neither the main scheme, not many of the proposals were ever carried out!
