THERE are a number of speed cameras operating across Bury.

The cameras aim to make sure drivers adhere to speed limits, and keep fellow motorists and pedestrians safe.

They are usually put in places where statistics show a high number of collisions and casualties.

Transport for Greater Manchester (TFGM) have compiled a list of the camera locations which we are publicising in a bid to encourage people to slow down.

On their website, TFGM say: "Safety cameras are a valuable and cost-effective way to discourage people from speeding or jumping traffic lights, and to identify drivers who ignore the warnings.

"So they work in two ways: by actually slowing traffic at dangerous points to reduce the risk of collisions at the time, and by catching offending drivers so that they will be less likely to drive dangerously in the future."

They added: "The only purpose of safety cameras is to reduce the number of serious injuries and deaths on our roads."

As well as fixed cameras, mobile cameras are also used across the borough and are not being highlighted here.

Greater Manchester Police have discretion to undertake speed enforcement anywhere within the county.

The list below shows the type of camera (ie speed, average speed, or red light), its location and the speed limit.

The list was last updated on March 29, 2019.
