Transport Minister Yiannis Karousos on Tuesday inspected the site on a busy Nicosia junction where the first four speed cameras are to be installed, as part of a project that will go into operation in October.

Karousos was at the first site where the traffic cameras system will be installed in Nicosia at the crossing of Griva Digenis avenue and Dimosthenes Severis avenue.

According to his post on Twitter, he went to the site with the director of the department of electrical and mechanical Services, Markos Markou for an assessment of the installation.


The €34 million project will be introduced in three phases and will see the company install 90 fixed cameras at 30 locations, to monitor red light and stop sign violations, as well as speeding. Another 20 mobile units will be deployed by the police during targeted campaigns or in rural areas
