Safety cameras

All the cameras in Salford are operated by the safety camera partnership, DriveSafe.

There are four types of camera in Salford:

  • Fixed site (speed)
  • Mobile site (speed)
  • Red light
  • Red light and speed on green combined

Cameras can only be located at sites where there have been a number of collisions resulting in people being killed or seriously injured (KSI) and where no other engineering solutions are suitable.

The following is a current list of all safety camera locations within the city:

Location Type of camera Speed limit in miles per hour

The following locations can be enforced using mobile speed cameras on an ad-hoc basis at any point along the route:

Location Type Speed limit in miles per hour
Walkden Road (East Lancashire Road/Worsley Brow) Mobile 30
A6 Manchester Road (Dorning Road/The Westlands) Mobile 30
Langley Road (Agecroft Road/Whit Lane) Mobile 30
A580 East Lancashire Road (Lancaster Road/A6 Manchester Road) Mobile 40
Liverpool Road (Prospect Place/Warrington border) Mobile 30
A666 Manchester Road (M60 junction/Bolton border) Mobile 30
Belvedere Road Mobile 30
Agecroft Road Mobile 30
A580 East Lancashire Road (Wigan border to M60 motorway) Mobile 40

Other sites can be targeted using mobile enforcement as a site of 'community concern'. This is where the collision record does not qualify it for a fixed camera or permanent mobile site but where the concerns of local residents are such that speed cameras would be of benefit in reducing speeds.
