New camera sites in Wolverhampton
8 May 2009
Five new fixed speed camera sites have been installed in Wolverhampton.
Two new cameras have been commissioned on the A4039 Parkfield Road, eastbound near Myatt Avenue and westbound near Windsor Road. The cameras were installed following four serious collisions and eleven collisions resulting in slight injuries during the 2004-2006 baseline period.
Two more cameras have been installed on the A4123 Birmingham New Road (northbound approaching The Grove) and A4123 Thompson Avenue (southbound approaching Dixon Street) following one fatal collision, eight serious collisions and twenty-seven slight injury collisions during this same period.
The A4123 Birmingham New Road also has a new northbound camera, approaching Meadow Lane. This camera has been installed following six serious collisions and eleven slight injury collisions during 2004-2006. An additional southbound camera is undergoing installation along this stretch of road and will be brought into use shortly.
It is hoped that all five cameras will reduce collisions along the roads and will ease residents' concerns about speeding motorists in their area.
New camera site on Coventry Road
8 May 2009
A new fixed speed camera site has been installed on the A45 Coventry Road at the junction with Ada Road towards Birmingham. This camera comes in response to concerns about anti-social driving along this section of road, which continues to prove dangerous, with one fatal collision, four serious collisions and twenty-five slight injury collisions during 2006-2008.
It is hoped that the camera will help prevent speeding motorists along this road and reduce the number of collisions.
