More average speed cameras start working on Latvian roads

Two more road sections of average speed control have started operating on the Daugavpils Highway (A6) during the night to Tuesday, September 19: from Koknese to Stukmaņi (km 102.4-116.0) and from the bridge over the Aiviekste in Pļaviņas to the house “Banderi” (km 133.5-139.2), Latvian State Roads (LVC) said.

The average speed, OCTA, roadworthiness, and payment of tolls where relevant will be controlled at these stages, LVC said.

The average speed control system is an automatic measuring system that performs a speed measurement based on the time taken to run a certain section of the road. At the beginning and end of the section, equipment shall be installed to record the times when the vehicle enters and leaves the section of road and to calculate the average speed at which the section has been crossed.

The average speed control system will be imposed on a total of 16 sections of the country's roads this year.

It is already running on:

  • Tallinn Highway (A1) from Siguļi to Lilaste (14.1-20.1 km);
  • Vidzeme Highway (A2) from the bridge over the Vējupīte in Sigulda to Augšlīgatne (54.5-62.3 km);
  • The Valmiera Highway (A3) from the bridge over the Līčupe to Stalbe (36.3 to 38.7 km);
  • Rīga bypass (Salaspils-Babīte) (A5) from Stūnīši to Jaunmārupe (23.1-28.6 km);
  • Regional road Cēsis-Vecpiebalga-Madona (P30) from Jaunkleķeri to Krustakrogs (km 22.1-29.0);
