The locations of New South Wales' Redlight-speed cameras, fixed speed cameras and point-to-point speed cameras are shown on the Google Map above. Use the Search box to type in a Suburb to find all cameras in that area. Mobile speed camera location data is coming soon (operational from July 2010).
Fixed speed cameras are installed at sites that meet specific criteria. The RTA Fixed Speed Camera Site Selection Criteria were developed by the RTA in consultation with the NRMA and the NSW Police Service.
These criteria are based on crash and injury accident rates and travelling speeds. This ensures that cameras are installed on 'blacklengths' (lengths of road with a high accident rate) with a demonstrated speeding problem.
There are currently 172 fixed speed cameras at 141 locations, 65 of these cameras are located in 44 school zones (school zones are considered locations). The location of these cameras are shown on the Google map above with a yellow marker . Zoom in or select a suburb in order to see these camera locations.
New safety cameras are being introduced to make intersections safer by enforcing both speeding and red-light offences.
Safety cameras use digital technology that is capable of detecting both red-light and speeding offences and will be replacing the current outdated wet-film red-light cameras that began operating in 1988. Safety cameras will be installed at 200 locations over four years.
Camera advisory signs are not legally required in NSW but it is RTA policy to alert motorists that they are approaching a safety camera. Each safety camera is accompanied by a clearly placed advance warning sign. This sign displays an image and a message which reads "Safety Camera Ahead". The location of these cameras are shown on the Google map above with a red marker .

Point-to-Point enforcement works by measuring the amount of time it takes a heavy vehicle to drive between two points and then calculates the average speed of the vehicle. If the vehicle's average speed is higher than the speed limit for the length of road, the driver will be booked for speeding.
All Point-to-Point enforcement lengths will be certified by a registered land surveyor to ensure the accuracy of average speed calculations. The distance used when calculating a vehicle's average speed across a Point-to-Point enforcement length will be the shortest practicable distance which ensures that there is no possibility that a driver's speed can be overestimated.
Point-to-Point enforcement is being installed on 20 bi-directional enforcement lengths on routes with a history of heavy vehicle crashes. These routes boundaries are shown on the Google map above with a blue marker . Speed surveys conducted by the Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) on these routes have found that about half of all heavy vehicles travel above the speed limit and approximately 35 per cent of fatal crashes involve heavy vehicles.
