I saw this on a poster (dated 30 April 2019) when I was at Heathrow Terminal 4 earlier today:

Subject: Speed Matrix and ANPR average Speed Cameras.
Speed matrix and ANPR average speed cameras are being installed on the Heathrow Airport road network.
These are dual ANPR and speed enforcement cameras. They are utilised to improve security at Heathrow Airport, prevent crime and reduce speed on airport roads improving road safety.
Drivers exceeding the speed limit commit offences under the Police Reform Act 2002, section 59(1). This gives the Police the power of enforcement including the power to seize vehicles being driven in an inconsiderate or careless manor which includes speeding.
The Metropolitan Police will work in partnership with Heathrow Airport limited who reserve the right to challenge anti-social behaviour including speeding within the airport boundary.
The easiest way not to come to notice of the cameras is to obey the speed limit.
Within the airport boundaries the maximum posted speed limit is 30mph on single carriageways and 40mph on dual carriageways unless otherwise signed.
All forecourts have a maximum speed limit of 20mph
Staff car parks have a maximum speed limit of 15mph
Main Inbound and Outbound Tunnels 30mph and 20mph while in contraflow.
Your action and support is required to communicate this notice to your individual departments.

As I was leaving Terminal 4, some guys in a large silver van were just finishing the installation of a new camera on the Southern Perimeter Road between Terminal 4 and Hatton Cross. This road is 40mph and even though the road belongs to the airport, it is accessible by the public. The camera is of a design I have never seen before; it is a small yellow box with speed camera markings on it and a what appears to be a camera/flash across the top of the front face. It is the size of a ream of A4 paper that has been stood on its end and it was fixed to a pole using cable ties. I would guess that these are going up all over the Heathrow perimeter road network which is either 30mph or 40mph including the dual carriageway between the M25 and Terminal 4.

Quite a difference from the "we can impound your vehicle" notice in the original post.

It never made any sense from the start. How can it be APNR when there are traffic lights and roundabouts between most of the cameras?

I think the warning poster was very carefully worded to imply a link between the cameras and the possibility of police prosecution/vehicle seizure for driving offences, without actually saying there was one.

To confirm - there are not speed cameras?

They are more CCTV cameras that record speeds and are not enforceable with fines and points?

I went past two of these today and exactly like everyone else I was thinking what the hell are they?!

They are NOT speed cameras, they are CCTV, whether they can record a speed at all is doubtful, hey rely on fear and ignorance plus the ambiguous signage.

There is no such thing as a law abiding motorist, just those who have been scammed and those yet to be scammed!
