Spending on creating CCTV networks in Stavropol (South Russia) will exceed 4 billion roubles

The Government of Stavropol Krai in South Russia intends to spend more than 2.5 billion roubles to increase CCTV camera networks on roads and highways to reduce traffic violations and accidents.

The measures were put forward by the Coordination Council for the Development of Investment and Competition in Stavropol Krai to reduce traffic accidents. The ‘Creating and maintaining road safety control systems’ project has already been approved, reports IA Regnum.

The project will require the installation of 280 cameras, of which:

  • 202 cameras will detect speeding violations
  • 54 cameras will detect violations at intersections
  • 12 cameras will detect parking violations
  • 12 cameras will monitor pedestrian crossings

According to preliminary reports, the project will be a joint public and private venture costing 4 billion roubles – more than 2.5 billion of which will be funded publicly and the rest will need to be funded by the private sector.

Rubezh magazine previously reported that the Stavropol police have already begun using drones, fitted with modern video-recording devices, to monitor vehicle registration numbers at any time of day or night.
