A total of 31 new speed cameras will be switched on in Wales on Monday, June 26.

The cameras are being installed in an effort to improve road safety and reduce the number of speeding motorists.

The new cameras will be located in a variety of locations across south Wales, including the A48 Southern Distributor Road in Newport, the A470 Northern Avenue in Cardiff, and the A4061 Baglan Street in Treherbert. They will be a mix of fixed speed cameras and “speed on green” cameras at traffic lights.

The “speed on green” cameras are designed to catch motorists who speed up as the traffic light turns green. These cameras are becoming increasingly common in the UK, as they have been shown to be effective in reducing speeding at traffic lights.

The new speed cameras are being installed by GoSafe, the Wales Road Casualty Reduction Partnership. GoSafe is a partnership between the Welsh Government, local authorities, and the police. The partnership’s goal is to reduce the number of road deaths and injuries in Wales.
