Road Safety Initiative - Installation and Re-commission Speed Enforcement Cameras
Decision Maker: Cabinet Member - Transport
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
Due to vehicles speeding in excess of the 30mph limit speed enforcement cameras will be installed / recommissioned at Temple Cloud, Writhlington, Farmborough and Pensford.
The Cabinet Member agrees that the £120,000 provisional budget in the 2016/17 capital programme be fully approved to implement Road Safety Initiatives, at Pensford, Farmborough, Writhlington and Temple Cloud.
Reasons for the decision:
The proposal aims to cause a reduction in traffic speed at locations where traffic speed in excess of the speed limit and is known to be a road safety risk. The intended outcome is thus a reduction in traffic speed and a corresponding improvement in road safety
Alternative options considered:
The alternative method of speed reduction is by physical measures, such as build-outs and road humps/ tables. These features are not supported on arterial roads as they disrupt traffic flows.
