Motorway Cameras

Volume 455: debated on Thursday 25 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport for what reason a number of cameras on tall yellow-painted poles have been sited on the M1 motorway near to the junction with the M18 and on the M18 carriageway verge near to the M1; whether these cameras are permanent; and if he will make a statement.

The Highways Agency have erected speed cameras between Junction 31 (A57) and Junction 32 (M18) while works to construct a fourth lane of the northbound and southbound carriageway of the M1 are ongoing. The cameras have been installed to enforce a 50 mph speed limit for the safety of drivers and road workers. The cameras will be removed once the works have been completed.
