During the 2015 calendar year how many temporary fixed position speed cameras were withdrawn from service that were positioned at a site where a temporary speed limit had been introduced because of road maintenance? (This figure should include all those temporary cameras that were installed and removed during 2015 but also those installed prior to the end of 2015 but subsequently removed during 2015.
For each of the temporary cameras referred to above please state:
a) When was it installed?
b) When was it removed?
c) Where it was positioned?
d) What was the original speed limit on the road?
e) What was the temporary speed limit being enforced for the cameras?
f) How many speeding motorists were issued with fines during the period of the temporary speed limit reduction?
g) What was the highest speed or highest average speed recorded at this site and if known the make and model of the vehicle involved and the penalty imposed?
Please note that if this request would be better dealt with by another authority (eg your local speed camera safety partnership) then please forward it to them on my behalf.
For clarification purposes my question relates to temporary average speed camera systems used to enforce temporary speed limits as well as "normal" speed cameras. For average speed cameras please state the geographical start and end point of the cameras that monitored the stretch of road as well as the questions a, b, d, e, f and g above.
a+b) We do not hold the installation date this would need to be requested from Highways England.
c) M5 Junctions 23 – 24
M4 Junctions 17 – 18
M5 Junction 14
f) M5 Junctions 23 – 24: 669
M4 Junctions 17 – 18: 6311
M5 Junction 14: 1661
g) M5 Junctions 23 – 24: 90mph, Mercedes A180
M4 Junctions 17 – 18: 105mph, Audi A3 Sport
M5 Junction 14: 85mph, Volkswagen CC
These are average speed camera we do not hold the geographical start and end point this would need to be requested from Highways England
