Minutes:

Further to Minute 7 of its meeting held on Thursday 26th October 2023, the Cabinet Committee received a report of the Executive Director (Environment and Place) concerning the petition requesting the installation of average speed cameras on the Eastern Avenue between Hamstel Road and Sutton Road.

 

Having considered the views of the Traffic Regulations Working Party in respect of this matter, it was:

 

Resolved:-

 

1. That up-to-date traffic flow and speed surveys be undertaken in this stretch of road.

 

2. That, following the surveys and analysis of the data, the Road Safety Partnership be approached to determine suitability of the site for average speed cameras and, if suitable, the process for operation and maintenance.

 

Reason for Decision

 

To determine the extent of a speeding issue along Eastern Avenue between Hamstel Road and Sutton Road.

 

Other Options

 

Not proceed with the collection of the data, which would not enable the Council to proceed with any potential average speed camera installation.

 

Note: This is an Executive function

Not eligible for call-in as the matter has already been subject to pre-Cabinet scrutiny by the Traffic Regulations Working Party.
