Hi

can anyone explain why they are now listing 26 sites on the A590, most likely just me, but makes no sense

Where did the ones at Eden Bridge, Scotby, Wreay, Low Wreay, Bullcoppice Bridge come from as these are listed on the M6

NEVER EVER seen a camera sign near Carlisle on the M6?? Is this a new site??

If you look on the maps they more or less cover the same areas. It’s mainly on the same stretches of road but at different points, and in different directions. It also appears they place most of their reliance on mobile cameras. I suppose they always place the cameras at the beginning and end of the two dual carriageways before and after Backbarrow, do they?.

I have seen the following camera locations on the A590...

1. Westbound between Heaves and Gilpin Bridge, at the bottom of a downhill dual carriageway section. They put the camera behind an overbridge after a long sweeping bend.
2. Eastbound at Gilpin Bridge itself, snapping people as they pull out to overtake at the start of the dual carriageway section
3. I've seen a site marked out at Backbarrow, halfway down a long straight, but never actually seen a camera there.
4. On the long straight past the "Dickson's Arms"
5. Westbound, at the end of the short dual carriageway section between Arrad Foot and Newlands.

There may be one or two more sites, but those are the only places I've actually seen the vans.

The Westbound Heaves/Gilpin Bridge is not only just behind the overbridge, but just after a slip road from the Levens junction. :bunker:
Drivers exiting the slip road as smartly as possible, and watching their mirror for cars already on the A590 have to be extremely wary! :steering:

Have you noticed that the Safety Camera announcements on Radio come during the Travel Upsets section, which lists problems on the road? How apt!
