New Brunswick highway cameras online

Last week the New Brunswick Department of Transportation made available its highway cameras online. There are over 30 cameras which allow users to see road and weather conditions around the province before traveling (or just out of curiosity).

One glaring omission is the lack of cameras along the Highway 2 which being the Trans-Canada highway is one of the busiest highways in the province. It appears that there are plans to add cameras on the highway in the upper Saint John valley but that still leaves no cameras between Fredericton and Moncton which can be treacherous at times in the winter.

Kudos to the NB DOT for this service.

Update Dec 08: There are now 36 cameras online including some in the Upper Saint John Valley near Woodstock and one on the Highway 2 (Trans-Canada) at the Saint John River Bridge between Fredericton and Moncton. http://www.gnb.ca/0113/cameras/camera-sites-e.asp

Update Dec 09: A few more cameras bringing the total up to 40. NB DOT have also added a new feature which displays snapshots from all of the highway cameras in New Brunswick – http://www.gnb.ca/0113/cameras/allcams-e.asp

  2. No there are no speed cameras in Fredericton or New Brunswick. The only cameras currently deployed are for traffic and weather monitoring only.

    There are still speed traps but no automated cameras giving you tickets.
    One site to consider is Trapster (http://trapster.com/rl/Trapster.php) which can show you user submitted speed traps.

  4. I can’t seem to find an official highway road map online. The best I can find onlin is at: http://www.gnb.ca/0113/maps/maps-e.asp

    I would perhaps try the tourism New Brunswick at 1-800-561-0123.

    I’d also recommend looking at Service New Brunswick at: https://www.pxw1.snb.ca/SNB9000/product.aspx?ProductID=A001PSNBCatAtlas&l=e The NB Atlas in particular is a great resource if you are planning on doing a lot of driving in New Brunswick.
