Hamilton City crews will be out on the Lincoln and the Red Hill Valley Parkways this weekend, placing temporary cameras to monitor traffic.

A council-approved study hopes to determine if the parkways are being used as shortcuts instead of using Highway 403 and the QEW.

Starting this Sunday, digital cameras will be placed on the median and side of both roadways to capture images of traffic, showing the type of vehicle and its licence plate number.

They will remain in place until May 4th, with the results expected to hit the desks of city councillors in the fall.
