Average speed cameras installed on the A90 between Blackdog and Balmedie as part of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route project are now operational.

The contractor for the project, Aberdeen Roads Limited, has installed the Jenoptik system with the aim of enhancing safety for construction workers and road users.

The average speed cameras are expected to stay in place until the works are complete and the reduced temporary speed limit is removed from this section of the A90.

A spokesman explained, “there has been a significant increase in works across the project since the beginning of this year and a 50mph speed restriction was introduced to improve the safety of road workers and road users.  When the average speed cameras become operational, the speed restriction will remain unchanged at 50mph – however, the cameras will help to ensure that this speed restriction is observed.

“In addition to the proven safety benefits of average speed cameras, their use in major road works schemes demonstrates their ability to improve traffic flow and journey time reliability.”
