A90 cameras that have caught hundreds of speeding drivers at Stonehaven to be removed

Temporary average speed cameras and a 50mph limit on the A90 at Stonehaven are to be removed next week in the latest stage of progress on the Aberdeen western bypass project.

The Stonehaven cameras have caught 789 drivers since going live last May, reports the Evening Express.

A Transport Scotland spokesperson said: “The temporary average speed cameras at Stonehaven and Charleston are expected to be decommissioned next week.

“This has been approved by various stakeholders including Police Scotland and provides a further sign that the AWPR works at these locations are progressing well and nearing completion.

“Safety cameras aim to reduce the number of casualties on Scotland’s roads by encouraging improved driver behaviour.

“This temporary system has helped to enhance the safety of construction workers and road users while significant roadworks were underway.

“Works will still be taking place on and adjacent to the A90 but these will be carried out during periods when the road is expected to be quieter. Road users should continue to observe all signage and drive with more caution than usual until all works are complete.

“We thank road users and the local community for their on-going support and patience during the construction works.”

Police Scotland will continue to monitor speed and driver behaviour on this section of road.

The permanent average speed camera system on the A90 between Dundee and Stonehaven will remain.

A North Safety Camera Unit spokesperson said: “The North Safety Camera Unit would like to thank road users for their co-operation and high level of compliance whilst these temporary average speed cameras were in place.”

Aberdeen Roads Limited has been working closely with Transport Scotland, Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire Councils, Police Scotland and the North Safety Camera Unit over the use of average speed cameras.
