Another 60 speed cameras on Brussels' roads
The Brussels government has announced a major increase in the number of speed cameras covering the region's roads, increasing from 89 to 149.
The new radars are all due to be installed next year, mobility minister Elke Van den Brandt told the Brussels parliament this week.
The purchase of 60 extra cameras comes ahead of the Brussels region becoming predominantly a 30kph zone from 2021.
Of the 89 fixed radars currently dotted around Brussels, a third are defective and are gradually being put back into service.
The Brussels region will devote almost €13 million to road safety next year, an increase of 12%.
