Strange that the Tonbridge bypass cam had been removed when I went past a few weeks ago, and I can't find the one on the A1 at Colsterworth (Lincs), but there is one a bit further north at Great Ponton.

This must be the permanent 50 mph specs cameras on the bend at Bredbury. They do catch people then. A lot of people!

I guess it has taken its profits and gone to live a life of luxurious retirement somewhere sunny Laughing

Well, it did look drunk for quite a long time, with a serious list to port, but as they had been working on or around it, I assumed thet the new angle was an experiment of some sort.

I wonder why they removed such a cash cow form there.

Maybe they've ALL taken their profits and gone off to a luxurious retirement somewhere sunny?

Any more details on the locations?

I'd be interested to know which of the (many) cameras on the A40 Western Avenue it was.

Unfortunately not. The M60 specs were still there this morning.
