Map of Mauritius showing speed cameras

Speed-cameras

With the first speed camera of a new type reported along the Phoenix-Beau Songes link road in a previous blog post, another blogger informed us of a new speed camera, this time at Paillotte, near the entrance to Candos.

This brings me to write this new post to map them altogether. This blog post will be updated whenever needed with locations of fixed speed cameras as well as those frequent regions where mobile cameras are usually placed.

As usual, you are the most welcomed to report any new fixed speed cameras. Pictures are the most welcomed. You can mail them at yashvin[at]awootar[dot]com.

  1. Yashvin, i was at la gare victoria tonight about 7.30 pm and the camera at the motorway flashed about 6- 7 time at cars, what i mean to say is that many of the cameras installed are already operational, and the flash they are using seems way quite good since as mentionned in your post, the camera is next to royal college or something, how can it flash in such a way that the whole area experience it?

    I bet many cars have been snapped by the speed cameras.

    1. Very often there is a mobile camera next to the steel barriers that you have between the motorway and Victoria station, or sometimes behind the parapet wall which is a little bit closer to the Caudan roundabout. It must be a very good spot to flash people as this is a straight part of the motorway with a speed limit of 60 km/h only.

  2. Hi Yashvin,

    Very often there are routine checks on the Sodnac link road between the B2 “Palma Road” and Nehru Road (just in the middle of both).

    And occasionally there are Hand Radar checks after Geoffroy Road and before Beaux Songes.

      1. No.

        On the SAME map, but with a different colour/shape.

        Just to show to the world how proud we are to have the record number of passive policemen (mind you: this is actually the technical name of speed-breakers abroad) on such a tiny island.

        Now, the Eurange voice, say with me:

        Dodoland.
        Le paradis. Maintenant avec 20 cameras, et bientot 140.
        Et 3,000 ‘humps’!
        Quel plaisir!
        La vie change, avec Dodoland.

  5. More places where police use a mobile detector: Ripailles (the slope with sugarcane on both sides), Quartier Militaire (opposite the football ground – did not notice them here since the speed limit went from 40 to 60), Providence (I don’t know where, but it’s quite frequent).
