Road Policing national manager Superintendent Steve Greally says the static camera expansion programme is an important part of the Government’s Safer Journeys road safety strategy.
“Police speed enforcement is just one of the measures which are effective in encouraging safer speeds and reducing deaths and serious injuries on our roads,” he says.
Kaiwaka is one of three sites selected for the latest installations, based on crash risk. The other two sites are on Ngapipi Road in Orakei and on Old North Road in Kumeu.
“We’ve worked with local councils, the AA, affected residents and other stakeholders to ensure everyone is satisfied with our decision to install these cameras and the response from the public has been overwhelmingly supportive.
Each camera uses the latest digital technology and has the ability to monitor multiple lanes of traffic in both directions.
In conjunction with the Static Camera Expansion Project, NZTA will also be rolling out signage highlighting zones of high crash risk.
