Minister for Roads and Freight Duncan Gay confirmed the promise had been made prior to coming into government in March 2011. The Government have identified 10 speed cameras across NSW to be removed from the following locations:

  • Delhi Road, Macquarie Park
  • General Holmes Drive, Botany
  • Hume Highway, Burwood
  • M4 Motorway, Wentworthville
  • Sherwood Road, Merrylands West
  • Woy Woy Road, Kariong
  • Manns Road, West Gosford
  • Newcastle Road, Lambton
  • New England Highway, Murrurundi
  • Blackwall Road, Woy Woy North

The Government will deliver the necessary safety upgrades, including new signage, barriers and markings before removing the cameras.

The 2014 Annual Speed Camera Performance Review has recommended another 2 speed cameras be further investigated and considered for removal at Richmond Road, Berkshire Park and Great Western Highway, Hartley.

“I am delighted today to personally help remove the first of ten speed cameras to come out in the next few weeks across NSW,” Minister Gay said.
