A77 – Driven by safety
The A77 Safety Group was formed in 2003 with a goal to make journeys along the A77 as safe as possible. While the group no longer actively meets, Transport Scotland have continued to promote their key objectives of promoting positive change in driving behaviour. This site will help you keep up to date with the changes to the average speed camera system which was an integral part of the initiative.
- Up to 65,000 motorists use the A77 daily
- The UK’s first and longest route based average speed camera system was installed on the A77 in 2005
- The objective was to improve driver behaviour and increase compliance with the speed limit
