Four will be in Glasgow, with the others in Cardross, Falkirk, Greenock and Port Glasgow.

The locations were chosen following an initial list published in 2020.

They were selected following an assessment of speeding and collisions, with Transport Scotland saying cameras are installed “primarily where they have the greatest potential to reduce injury collisions and where there is evidence of both collisions and speeding”.

New speed cameras for 24 sites across Scotland

The cameras are part of Transport Scotland’s ambitious strategy to reduce deaths and serious injuries on the country’s roads to zero by 2030.

Ms Gilruth said: “A range of evidence is used to identify the sites most in need of these new cameras.

"This means we are targeting this kind of safety intervention where speed has been issue in the past, with the aim of having the maximum impact on reducing accidents.

“Where safety cameras have been installed on other routes, they have a strong track record of improving driver behaviour, reducing speeding and making our roads safer for all.

“Deaths or serious injuries on our road network are not an inevitability.”
