A38(M) Motorway
The A38(M), also known as the ASTON EXPRESSWAY, is a motorway in Birmingham
Birmingham
, England. It is 2 miles (3.2 km) long and was opened on 24 May 1972. It forms part of the much longer A38 route. It is extremely unusual among UK motorways, as part of it consists of seven lanes with no central reservation, and operates a tidal flow system in an attempt to minimise congestion. Due to the nature of the road, the speed limit is reduced to 50 mph (80 km/h) for most of its length with a very short length of 30 mph (48 km/h), though there are no permanent speed cameras . When construction work of the motorway began in the late 1960s, many late 19th-century and early 20th-century houses in the Aston
Aston
area had to be demolished to make way for the new route

Australia
and parts of the United States
United States
and Canada), MOTORWAY (in the United Kingdom, Ireland and New Zealand) and EXPRESSWAY (some parts of Canada, parts of the United States, and many Asian countries). Other similar terms include _Interstate _ and _parkway _. Some of these may be limited-access highways , although this term can also refer to a class of highway with somewhat less isolation from other traffic. In countries following the Vienna convention , the motorway qualification implies they are forbidden for walking or parking, and reserved for the use of motorised vehicles only. A controlled-access highway provides an unhindered flow of traffic, with no traffic signals , intersections or property access

Reversible Lane
A REVERSIBLE LANE ( British English
British English
: TIDAL FLOW) is a lane in which traffic may travel in either direction, depending on certain conditions. Typically, it is meant to improve traffic flow during rush hours, by having overhead traffic lights and lighted street signs notify drivers which lanes are open or closed to driving or turning. Reversible lanes are also commonly found in tunnels and on bridges, and on the surrounding roadways – even where the lanes are not regularly reversed to handle normal changes in traffic flow. The presence of lane controls allows authorities to close or reverse lanes when unusual circumstances (such as construction or a traffic mishap) require use of fewer or more lanes to maintain orderly flow of traffic

Speed Camera
A TRAFFIC ENFORCEMENT CAMERA (also RED LIGHT CAMERA , ROAD SAFETY CAMERA, ROAD RULE CAMERA, PHOTO RADAR, PHOTO ENFORCEMENT, SPEED CAMERA, GATSO , SAFETY CAMERA, BUS LANE CAMERA, FLASH FOR CASH, SAFE-T-CAM, depending on use) is a camera which may be mounted beside or over a road or installed in an enforcement vehicle to detect traffic regulation violations, including speeding , vehicles going through a red traffic light , vehicles going through a toll booth without paying, unauthorized use of a bus lane , or for recording vehicles inside a congestion charge area. It may be linked to an automated ticketing system. The latest automatic number plate recognition systems can be used for the detection of average speeds and raise concerns over loss of privacy and the potential for governments to establish mass surveillance of vehicle movements and therefore by association also the movement of the vehicle's owner
