Get ready, Larnaca! The cameras at four key locations are primed and ready, and word has it that this Wednesday might bring the official announcement of their operation.
As reported by Philenews, Paphos, while in the installation process, is gearing up to activate its cameras by early 2024.
According to insights from the Traffic Police and Photolabelling System official, Thanks Euripidou, Zonas got the green light after a thorough check by the Department of Electromechanical Services last Friday.
Smooth operation was the verdict, setting the stage for police scrutiny to align complaints with violations.
The decision on official operation, potentially reporting driver violations, hinges on a meeting tomorrow—if all goes well, we could see action starting December 15, allowing drivers time to navigate the Highway Code and get acquainted with the cameras.
Already in place at four intersections are cameras:
- Spyrou Kyprianou Ave. and Luther King Ave. (four cameras)
- S. Sapphire Ave. and S. Kirghiziou St. (two cameras)
- Artemis Ave. and Faneromeni Ave. (four cameras)
- Eleftherias Ave. with Iliados and Spyros Kyprianou (Aradippou) – four more in the second phase.
Paphos is catching up, expecting operation before the first quarter of 2024. Installations are underway:
- Europa Ave. with Yannou Kranidiotis and George Savvas (four cameras)
- Hellas Ave. with Republic and Tassos Papadopoulos (four cameras)
- Athens Aves. with Christodoulou Sozou (two cameras)
- Agioi Anargyroi Aves. with Spyrou Kyprianou and Agapinoros (four cameras)
But that's not all; fixed cameras are making appearances at strategic points, deviating from the original light-controlled plan due to construction.
As Evripidou shared, lookout for fixed cameras along the Larnaca-Dhekelia coastal road, the road to Mazotos, Archangelos Ave. in Nicosia, and the vertical road from the Limassol-Paphos motorway to the new Limassol port. Stay tuned for updates as Larnaca gears up for a tech-savvy traffic future!
