COFFS Coast motorists be warned you're about to see red light camera flashes on the Pacific Highway pinging motorists for unsafe driving through the city's busiest intersection.

The Pacific Highway intersection at Woolgoolga Rd, the cross of Bray and Orlando sts, will be one of 10 new locations where red light cameras will be fitted, The Advocate can reveal.

Roads and Maritime Services has advised local police, emergency services and transport and safety organisations that the red light cameras will be fitted at the Bray St traffic lights from next week.

Work will start on the installation of red light cameras at the Pacific Highway/Woolgoolga Rd intersection at Orlando and Bray Sts on Monday.
