Issue details

Installation of Red Light and Speed on Green Cameras

The county council, in collaboration with Lancashire Constabulary, as part of the Safer Roads Partnership has identified two sites on the A59 in Ormskirk (Five ways and Hayfield Road) where the introduction of red light and speed on green cameras would assist in reducing road traffic incidents.


The county council has identified an infra-red speed camera system which is effective in picking up speeding offences and requires less intrusive installation than camera systems that require cabling to be installed underground. The infra-red camera systems can be mounted on standard and passively safe columns or existing street furniture and are more reliable and easier to maintain.


The infra-red system is currently only produced by the supplier Jenoptik, which is the only supplier to have Home Office Type Approval for the infra-red camera technology.
