Over 400 speeding drivers have been ticketed by average speed cameras on the A90 between Balmedie and Blackdog in Scotland.

The point-to-point cameras were installed on July 25 this year to protect bypass construction workers.

A spokesman for Transport Scotland said: "One road user speeding along this road is one road user too many because they are creating a risk to themselves and to road workers. Where a driver is detected as being excessively above the speed limit the circumstances are reported by the camera unit to the procurator fiscal for consideration of the appropriate action."

He continued: "In addition to these proven safety benefits, their use in major road works projects demonstrates their ability to improve traffic flow and journey time reliability. The average speed cameras are expected to stay in place until the works are complete and the reduced temporary speed limit is removed from this section of the A90."

The cameras monitor a temporary 50mph limit stretch - 405 motorists were caught going between 50mph and 69mph.

Transport Scotland has recently announced that more cameras are to be added to the A90, south of Aberdeen at Charleston, to protect the workforce building a new bridge.
