pocketgpsworld.comOnce again the roads of Essex are the targets for more SPECs Average Speed Cameras. From July 20th the SPECs Average Speed Cameras will be extended from the M11 junction all the way to the A12 intersection.

These cameras will likely be a little confusing as the speed limit changes within the area of coverage. Currently the cameras covering the works in the tunnel area are 40MPH where the contraflow is and on the clockwise section 50MPH after the tunnel to the M11 junction. It would be reasonable to assume that the speed limit will drop to 50MPH on the 20th when the new roadworks start.

Click here to see our video of the new camera locations.

The new SPECs cameras continue where the original ones left off and cover all the way round to just before the A12 in both directions. These are intermingled with the existing SPECs on the anti-clockwise section.

At PocketGPSWorld we capture and verify the locations of these cameras for inclusion in the Speed Camera Database.

This is a short video of us surveying the new locations. They will all be in the database next week so that you will be protected when they are activated on the 20th July. Visit www.pocketgpsworld.com for more details and compatibility with your SatNav.

Our most popular database is the TomTom Safety Camera Database but we support Garmin, Navman, CoPilot, Mio, and 40 other SatNav systems.

Now that's what I call a decent video Mike, both slick and interesting. Such a shame it's only on the forum, would be very good as a promo.

Maybe you could start a section to teach us all how to get that sort of result? In the meantime, I'll go hide my beach video where nobody can see how amateur it is. Embarassed

Actually if you all watched it on YouTube it may become popular...

Hi, Ive just seen your video it looks great, the 1st (specs:[email protected]) and 4th (specs:[email protected]) camera are the new cams that dont use fiber optical cable to communicate with each other but, use radio waves. you can spot them as the pole is not yellow

Might I make a teensy weensy suggestion? If you do another similar video, would it be possible to flash up an arrow pointing at the camera at some point as you pass? Some watchers may not have seen a specs camera before, so may not notice them and it just becomes a nice video of a motorway trip.

No, they're all standard SPECS in that video. SPECS3 are the ones you are thinking of and they camera heads are quite different. They wouldn't me mixed.

Original SPECS has a camera with an illuminator either side, SPECS3 is a two unit system:

Unless I am mistaken the ones with the Blue poles are the original 3 70MPH cams running up from the A12 to the M25. I think all the new ones have yellow poles which is the (unwritten) policy for SPECs cameras now.

I looked at these camera's on my way home tonight. From the M11 clockwise they definately look more like the specs 3 type, ie, they only have a 'pod', whatever, on one side in addition to the lens housing. Anyone else noticed this?

You're quite right which means I owe gazphone an apology.

There appears to be a mix of SPECS and SPECS3 cameras. Presumably the SPECS are the original install and SPECS3 are the new cameras.

In which case you need to be very careful, these are all connected, all live and lane switching won't help (if it ever did).

Thanks Darren, no need for an apology at all.

I was going over the QE2 bridge today and all the Specs are the new Specs3 cameras.

should there be a new camera poi file for specs3?

No need for a new category, they're still SPECS, just much more likely to catch you.

Regarding the colour of the poles, I think these are temporary SPECS as they are doing preparatory works for widening to 4 lanes here

See http://www.highways.gov.uk/roads/projects/5739.aspx

Indeed these new cameras are for the roadworks as mentioned in the original post. However all new SPECs are installed with Yellow poles now irrespective of the type of traffic they are monitoring. They are also replacing the blue ones with Yellow when the need to maintain them.

I'm keeping out of Essex - way too complicated. Blue poles and devices is for (everywhere else) TrafficMaster.

Reminds me, I must look up Cumbria to see if the propaganda machinery now says they save lives. Last year they took off the statistics because with the cameras more fatal accidents occurred. Crying or Very sad
