Work is underway to start installation on average speed cameras along the 50mph stretch of the A449 Hartlebury – Ombersley, Worcestershire to reduce speeds, improve safety and reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured.
The project is a partnership between West Mercia Police, Worcestershire County Council and leading speed technology firm Jenoptik and has been made possible through funding from West Mercia Police & Crime Commissioner Road Safety fund.
PCC John Campion says: “Too many people die or are seriously injured on our roads. Road safety continues to be at the heart of my work as Commissioner with my focus being on tackling inappropriate speed and driver behaviour. Schemes such as this are a vital tool to ensure we reduce the life changing impact of poor driver behaviour on our roads.”
