There will be 7 new speed camera locations being tested in the south-east corner over the coming weeks and if successful will be operational by mid 2010 and then will be rolled out through the rest of the state. These will be:

TWO COMBINED RED LIGHT/SPEED CAMERAS -

Cnr Waterworks Road and Jubilee Terrace, Ashgrove
Cnr Beaudesert Road and Compton Road, Calamvale

THREE SPOT FIXED SPEED CAMERAS

Pacific Motorway, Loganholme
Gateway Arterial Road, Nudgee
Clem7 Tunnel, Woolloongabba to Bowen Hills

ONE MOBILE SPEED CAMERA - used at varying locations

ONE POINT-TO- POINT SPEED CAMERA SYSTEM

Bruce Highway, Caloundra Road to Wild Horse Mountain, Beerburrum

A point-to-point (or average) speed camera system uses a number of cameras over a length of road to measure a vehicle's average speed. The system uses the time it takes for a vehicle to travel between the two points to calculate the average speed of the vehicle: Speed = Distance/Time.
Point-to-point speed camera systems use a number of cameras mounted at staged intervals along a particular route.
Point-to-point camera systems, like fixed speed cameras, are monitoring traffic 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
However, unlike current fixed speed cameras, point-to-point systems are not activated when a vehicle violates the speed limit at a given point in time measured by a speed detection device. Rather, point-to-point camera systems apply a mathematical calculation based on the time it takes for a vehicle to travel from one camera to the next and the distance between the cameras.
The first length of road the system will cover is approximately 13km.
Please exercise some common sense when driving particularly through these locations and avoid any
infringements. The new locations will be digital processors so if an infringement is detected the images are
uploaded instantly to the infringements processing centre and you receive notification with 2-3 days.
Currently with the wet-film system these can take up to 4 weeks.
Please pass this around to everyone regardless of if they have a company car or not and please be safe on the roads.
