M1 J25-30 Speed Cams

Post by RickN55 » Tue Apr 10, 2018 12:38 pm

Has anybody else noticed they've removed all the speed cameras from the overhead gantries over each lane and now only have those on the side of the gantries every so often instead? Got me wondering why they've moved them all they used to be in most gantries :?

Same thing is happening down our way.

2x yellow cameras on the side posts of the gantry rather than an individual camera above each lane in the gantry.

AFAIU the 2x camera setup does not require the dashed lines across the carriageway to prove/show speed.

I believe the side gantry cameras are the Hadec 3 and are variable speed cameras which change to the speed shown on the gantry warnings signs with a 1 minute delay.

They’re not average speed cameras so don’t know why they’ve been removed Rick.

Yeah they still have the Hadecs 3s on the side of some of the gantries.. But the over head cams over each lane used to be more or less on every gantry where as the hasdecs are only every couple of junction. Just odd how they've took them all down

I read somewhere recently that the old cameras were being replaced as GATSO could no longer service them and their accuracy could be suspect.

Could be a planned money spinner gone wrong.

They have the new 3 on the M4 at Bristol
See so many flashes on the opposite carriageway.
Flow triggers are on gantries above each lane.
