Transport Scotland’s reported to be considering putting speed cameras on Aberdeen’s Western Bypass, three years after saying there were no plans for a scheme on the route.
The Press and Journal reports that Transport Secretary Michael Matheson says it’s a possibility that average speed cameras could be put on the route. They’ve been successful in reducing accidents and improving journey times on other key roads in Scotland including the A9 and A90.
The paper adds that 271 speeding cases have been reported by the Police in the 18 months since the road opened. Transport Scotland says it’ll work with Police to decide if more enforcement is necessary.
