Safety Cameras / Fixed Speed Cameras / Red Light Cameras

A network of Watchman cameras and vehicle actuated boards have been introduced throughout the Borough to encourage road users to drive more slowly thereby helping the Council to lower the number of collisions occurring on Tameside's roads.

These boards remind road users, that are travelling over the speed limit with a message asking them to "Slow Down".  The boards also record vehicles speeds that enable traffic engineers to build up speed profiles of the roads covered.  This enables the Council to identify speed hotspots and take the necessary action.

Safety cameras are in use in Tameside to enforce both speeding and traffic light offences. These are targeted at locations with a historically poor road safety record, with the aim of reducing road casualties in the future.

Further information on the safety cameras in Greater Manchester can be found on the Greater Manchester Casualty Reduction Partnership website Link to External Website, who manage all the safety cameras.

The posts supporting the boards are painted in the appropriate civic colours.

 A system of data collection cameras that enable traffic engineers to build up speed profiles of the road covered.  This enables the Council to identify speed hotspots and take the necessary action.  They can also be used to help identify regular speeding offenders.

The cameras also contain an overview camera that may be used for general public safety reasons.

The cameras are painted in the appropriate civic colours.
