More than 3000 fixed penalty speeding tickets totalling £300,000 have been issued only M-60 motorway through the roadworks.

Motorists were caught out by average speed cameras on a 17 mile stretch of motorway which were activated in February. The speed cameras had been dormant for the previous five months as there had been an ongoing row about the legality of the cameras.

Since greater Manchester police activated the speed cameras which enforce the temporary 50 mile an hour speed limit, over 3000 fixed penalty notices have been served. In one week, 995 motorists face a prosecution for speeding.

The 50 mile per  hour average speed cameras were put in place in November 2014 on the M60 from Junction 8 at Stretford through to junction 20 on the M62 at Rochdale.

This speed camera system is part of the new  smart motorway project which is due to be finalised by autumn 2017. This will introduce approximately 200 new electronic speed signs which will warn drivers of the changes in the mandatory speed limit, lane closures and incidents ahead.
