Three red light and speed camera radars installed in Hollerich will enter a test phase from 1 June.

Part of national road safety plans, the radars--located on Boulevard Dupong, Boulevard Dr Charles Marx and Route d'Esch--come after the launch of other cameras on the A13 motorway to Germany and on PLace de l’Étoile. They will be able to detect speeding and drivers running red lights. The maximum speed limit at the three locations in Hollerich where the cameras will operate is 50km/h.

During the test phase no tickets or warnings will be issued. All data generated during this period, including photos, will be deleted.

The roadside camera on place de l’Étoile which became operational on 23 July 2021 resulted in 10,000 detected offences during its four-month test phase.

Additional average speed radars are planned to be installed in the tunnels of the Nordstrooss, the A7 motorway, where the 90km/h speed limit in the tunnels is often exceeded. The exact date of their installation is not known and authorities are currently carrying out analyses as to their installation.
