Temporary Average Speed Cameras Returns To M8 Motorway


Glasgow’s M8 Motorway Speed Cameras Return.

In a recent announcement, temporary average speed cameras are set to make a comeback on Glasgow’s M8 highway. The cameras will be reinstated to ensure speed limit compliance and provide a safer working environment for maintenance workers during the second phase of essential bridge refurbishment works. The project, which spans from junction 25 (Cardonald) to 25a (Braehead), is scheduled to take place between April 17 and July 27.

Enforcing Speed Limits: The 40mph Restriction

Throughout the maintenance period, a 40mph speed limit will be strictly enforced. The average speed cameras will be in full operation to monitor compliance and maintain safe working conditions for the crew working on the eastbound carriageway. Last year, during the first phase of the project on the westbound carriageway, more than 7,000 offenses were recorded by the Safety Camera Unit, with some motorists clocked at speeds of up to 95mph.
