Cyprus increases surveillance with new cameras

New cameras deployed in Larnaca and Limassol


Cyprus is expanding its traffic violation control system with the activation of additional cameras across various districts.

According to the Traffic Department of the Police, as of today, Monday, February 5, eight more photo enforcement cameras are being deployed at four key points in the Districts of Larnaca and Limassol.

This expansion marks the gradual rollout of fixed photo enforcement cameras at 12 additional locations, covering Nicosia, Limassol, and Larnaca. By the end of March 2024, authorities anticipate a total of 90 fixed cameras operating at 30 strategic points along the road network.

In the Limassol District, two cameras each will be activated at the junctions of 28th October Avenue and Iakovou Tombazi, and at the junction of Amathountos Avenue opposite the Arsinoe Hotel. Additionally, two cameras will be installed at the junction of Amathountos Avenue and Ariadnis Street.

Already operational in the Limassol District are four fixed cameras at the intersection of Archiepiskopou Makariou III - Nikou Pattichi and Archiepiskopou Leontiou I, and another four at the intersection of Archiepiskopou Makariou III and Agias Zonis.

In Larnaca, two devices will be activated along a section of the Kiti-Mazotos road for speed control. The city will see enhanced monitoring with cameras deployed at various junctions and thoroughfares.

Furthermore, 20 mobile cameras remain active daily across the island's road network, ensuring comprehensive coverage of traffic enforcement efforts.

The distribution of fixed photo enforcement cameras per district is as follows:
- Nicosia: 5 points, totaling 16 cameras
- Limassol: 5 points, with 14 cameras
- Larnaca: 7 points, accommodating 20 cameras
- Paphos: 5 points, equipped with 18 cameras

Specifically, in Nicosia, cameras are stationed at key intersections, including Griva Digeni Avenue and Demostheni Severi, and Strovolos Avenue with Mahairas Street. Limassol's camera network covers intersections such as Archiepiskopou Makariou and Nikou & Despina Pattichi, among others.

Larnaca's monitoring system includes points like Artemidos Avenue and Faneromenis, and Spyrou Kyprianou Avenue with Martin Luther King and Pavlos Valtasidis streets.

In Paphos, vital intersections like Athens and Christoforos Savva Avenues are under surveillance.

Looking ahead, plans include the activation of 18 additional cameras by the end of March 2024, further bolstering enforcement capabilities, particularly in Limassol and Nicosia.

This expansion underscores Cyprus's commitment to enhancing road safety and enforcing traffic regulations across its regions. As the network grows, motorists can expect heightened vigilance and enforcement measures to ensure safer roadways for all.
