Average speed camera networked expands across Manchester


New average speed cameras are being installed across Greater Manchester as part of continued work to increase resources for law enforcement. Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) is upgrading speed cameras across 25 routes with the ‘latest generation of average speed systems’ which track how long it takes a vehicle to travel between two set points on a road using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology provided by Jenoptik.

TfGM and Greater Manchester Police (GMP) have worked with Jenoptik to analyse each route to ensure the cameras are placed at the most ‘optimal’ points to deliver the best improvements to road safety for all road users. The system works by sending information automatically to the camera shortly after the vehicle has left the monitored section, an image is captured and if the vehicle is travelling too fast this will be shared with GMP.
