London City Airport users and other motorists in the eastern part of London should be aware that from today onwards new average speed cameras will be active on the A13. The scheme, the first of its kind in the UK, will begin operating between Canning Town and the Goresbrook Interchange. Hopefully it will help reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries on this stretch of road; notorious for collisions.
A total of 84 cameras, based at 37 locations, will monitor the speed of vehicles as they drive along the A13. If the average speed for a vehicle along the stretch of the road they drive along is above the speed limit, the owner of the car will be issued with a Notice of Intended Prosecution (NIP) by the Metropolitan Police.
Regular users of the road will note however the speed limit has been raised from 40mph to 50mph on this section of what is a main arterial road towards the Queen Elizabeth Bridge and the M25. www.speedcamerasuk.com/specs.htm
