  • Specs in Blackwall Tunnel

    From Tyresmoke forum


    There are now small undetectable specs cameras (average speed detection cameras) sited in both the north and south bore of the Blackwall tunnel. The speed limit for the tunnels are 30mph northbound and 40mph southbound.

    It would appear that TFL have implemented it. Any offences for speeding through the tunnel would be raising funds of £100 per offence or £50 if paid promptly. They have not installed signs warning drivers of this speed trap and therefore would not be looking to hit drivers with a licence endorsement, just take the money from you.



    This information has been verified by the police and tunnel maintenance workers who wish to remain anonymous. Beware.

                update

                Hopefully we can clear this up once and for all, after hearing the same rumour recently on "another forum" I spoke to a good friend of mine who is incharge of a maintenance shift in the tunnel, the FACTS are that yes a new camera system has been installed which acts in a similar way to SPECS but importantly is not specs, it reads the rear number plates (and has been tested with motorbikes) close to the entry and exit points of each tunnel, it can be linked to the ANPR system and may well be used in the future for that purpose, it completed it's final sign off tests within the last couple of weeks and is now live. However it is not type approved (yet) for speed monitoring even though it does it very well and accurately and as such nothing that it records can or will be used for any prosecutions for speeding (again yet), it is intended as a monitoring system to monitor traffic flow and average speeds in the same way that TM does, it then gives the control room more information about how effective things like "tidal flow" are. He also added that he only gave it a few weeks tops before it packed up as the rats will have eaten it and nothing in the tunnel bloody works anyway.
