Seven NEW red light speed cameras are now in operation on Qld roads

SEVEN new combined red light speed cameras have been installed at a number of ‘high-risk’ intersections in Queensland in an effort to improve road safety.

The cameras, which were carefully selected by the Queensland Police Service and Transport and Main Roads based on the number and severity of speed and red-light-related road crashes, were switched on today.

Assistant Commissioner Mike Keating said the combined red light speed camera technology would detect motorists who disobey the red traffic light, as well as motorists who speed through the intersection.

“This means cameras will not only detect a motorist speeding through red lights but also green and amber lights,” Mr Keating said.

Full list of the seven new combined red light speed cameras:

  • Old Logan Road, Camira at intersection with Alice Street
  • Logan River Road, Edens Landing at intersection with Castile Crescent
  • Mount Gravatt-Capalaba Road, Mackenzie at intersection with Gateway Motorway
  • Warwick Road, Yamanto at intersection with Cunningham Highway
  • Bruce Highway, Gympie (Wickham Street) at intersection with Monkland Street
  • Bruce Highway, Mt Sheridan at intersection with Coombs Street
  • Cunningham Highway, Warwick at intersection with Fitzroy Street.

The new cameras will be in operation 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
