A new temporary bus gate at the bottom of Union Street will not generate any cash for the council.
The measure has been brought in to help the flow of buses around the pedestrianised area of Aberdeen’s main street, which has been put in place to assist with physical distancing.
But given it is temporary and there is increased scrutiny involved with installing revenue-raising cameras to catch those flouting the rules, none are to be put in.
Instead, it will be left to police to oversee.
The installation is expected to finish today, meaning only buses and taxis will be able to travel between The Adelphi and Market Street to access Guild Street.
Transport spokeswoman Councillor Sandra Macdonald said: “We haven’t looked into whether a camera is a necessity or even a legal possibility.
“There is no camera enforcement and we are really relying on people’s good judgement.
“This was done to help traffic flow and is for the good of all, so it’s in everyone’s interest to make it work.
“My personal view is police will have a light touch on it as it’s new and people will inadvertently drive through it, so we have to bed it in.”
Both First Bus and Bluebird Stagecoach have hit out at the closure of the Market Street to Bridge Street stretch, which contains the city’s seven busiest bus stops.
The bus gate is the last of the initial Spaces For People work planned for Aberdeen’s main street, part of a £1.76 million city-wide safety project.
