New traffic cameras will be gradually installed so that drivers get used to their location points – something that will prevent the system from getting overflooded with violations.
Cameras have already been installed in three of the six points included in the second phase of the system and the company operating them has begun testing.
When everything is set, ensuring that no problem occurs with the recording of violations then the Electromechanical Services Department will take over.
This is what the Department’s head, Markos Markou, told Philenews adding that before the cameras are put into operation at a specific point police will give out the necessary warning. That is, drivers will be informed exactly where the cameras are.
Based on the contractual agreement, the operation of the additional camera should take place by end of January 2023.
Test cameras are currently installed and operating in the following locations in Nicosia:
– At the intersection of Strovolos Avenue and Macheras Street in front of Pepsi Cola
– At the intersection of Griva Digeni Avenue and Prodromos Avenue
– At the intersection of Limassol Avenue and Armenias Street
