Plans have been announced to install a £250,000 average speed camera system on a 15.9-mile stretch of the A82 and A85 roads between Tyndrum and Lix Toll.
It is expected to be constructed and activated later this summer, and will replace the existing mobile camera enforcement currently taking place on this section of the route.
“We already know from our experience with average speed cameras successfully deployed elsewhere on our road network that they encourage improved levels of driver behaviour, with a 60% reduction in the number of killed or seriously injured casualties on similar rural single carriageways sections of road,” the Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure & Connectivity, Michael Matheson, said.
“This investment will deliver a range of benefits for road users. This includes reducing road casualties, improving journey time reliability and reducing the frequency of incidents and disruptive closures.”
East Safety Camera Unit Manager, Andy Jones, added: “The East Safety Camera Unit currently deploys mobile safety camera vans along this route and motorists are complying with the speed limit when the vans are present.
“However, there is a significant number of vehicles travelling above the limit out with enforcement periods, as well as collisions caused by inappropriate speed. We welcome the introduction of an average speed camera system as a more permanent means of encouraging improved driver behaviour to users of this stretch of road.”
