SPEED CAMERAS COULD BE INTRODUCED ON ABERDEEN’S THIRD DON CROSSING

The crossing was designed to take 10,000 vehicles per day.

The crossing was designed to take 10,000 vehicles per day.

Speed cameras could be introduced on the Third Don Crossing just five months after it opened.

Aberdeen City Council officers are carrying out a review into issues associated with the £22.3 million bridge since it opened in June.

The link between Bridge of Don and Tillydrone has been designed to take 10,000 vehicles per day.

But drivers have been found speeding on the 30mph route, doing an average of 42mph.

It has now been revealed speed cameras are to be considered in a range of measures to stop motorists driving dangerously.

Officers will complete their recommendations within the next few weeks.

Councillors on the local authority’s communities, housing and infrastructure committee are to then hear about the proposed measures in the new year.

Transport and regeneration spokesman Councillor Ross Grant today said discussions have taken place in relation to introducing the devices.

He said: “Speed cameras have been raised during a number of forums.

“As a council we need to consider if there are additional steps we need to take and I wouldn’t rule out speed cameras. We are taking this very seriously and this will be considered as part of the Third Don Crossing review.

“In my discussions with officers, I have been asking them to look at speed cameras as an option.”

Cameras have already been installed at the nearby Bedford Road bus gate to stop drivers flouting the law.

The measure was introduced on Bedford Road, near Kittybrewster Retail Park, last month – meaning only buses and cyclists are able to access the road.

Transport Scotland has also introduced average speed cameras on sections of the A90 to deter motorists from speeding. The cameras are currently in operation on the A90 between Blackdog and Balmedie

The organisation is also looking at installing average speed cameras around the Charleston and Findon junctions as part of the ongoing AWPR work.
