M62 Junction 8 SPECS System - Jonathan
Dear all

I have spoken to Cheshire Police Motorway Division (01244 612740). They confirmed that the new gantry poles are for the SPECS system which will be installed. I inquired whether they would be a permanant fixture, the reply was that they would only be there for the duration of the roadworks.

I also contacted the Highways Agency (again). This time they said that they will get back to me. I will keep you posted, hopefully the two organisations are talking and will give the same answer.

Looks like I will be driving through Warrington town centre now. Much safer than the motorway, less children.

Hi Jonathan

thanks for getting this info confirmed

as ever

If the SPECS system continues to operate after the roadworks have gone, any prosecution could be defeated. s78 of PACE provides a defence to criminal proceedings where the 'evidence was obtained unfairly'. The magistrate/judge can throw the case out if unfairness is established. Deception by the police gives a strong case.
