Additional short term deployment on A85


An additional short term deployment has been announced on the A85 between Tyndrum and Oban following reports of speeding vehicles from local policing.  

Two locations were identified in August as being suitable for short term deployment to assist in influencing driver’s behaviour- Taynuilt to Dalmally and Taynuilt to Connel. Further enforcement will be introduced between Tyndrum to Dalmally.

Short term deployments are limited to a maximum period of one month and are available in response to emerging issues where the change in traffic behaviour has raised concerns.

Alan Bowater, Area Manager for the West Safety Camera Unit stated ‘Safety Cameras Scotland currently operate two short term deployments on the A85. Police Scotland have requested  assistance on this route due to growing concerns of drivers continuing to travel at inappropriate speeds on this road. The addition of the site between Tyndrum – Dalmally will strengthen the existing enforcement undertaken by Safety Cameras Scotland and local road policing.’
