WC to install more speed cameras
Robin Carlisle said they were planning to install more speed camera's throughout the province.
CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Transport MEC Robin Carlisle on Monday said they were planning to roll out more speed camera projects throughout the province.
The R61 Aberdeen Road that links Beaufort West to the Eastern Cape is home to the world's Longest Speed-Over-distance Camera Network.
A pair of cameras track motorists speed within a 71km range.
Authorities said the project has been very successful.
The Transport Department said there was a drastic drop in the number of drivers who exceeded the speed limit on the R61.
Carlisle said they now want to establish a further four separate camera networks near the areas of Three Sisters, Leeu Gamka, Laingsburg and Worcester.
"I want these in by September, the latest."
He said the entire project would cost around R10 million.
Meanwhile, the City of Cape Town said its camera network on the M5 has kept speeding to a minimum.
