Average Speed Cameras are now up and running on two of Coventry’s busiest roads. The cameras have been installed along Ansty Road and London Road. This aims to reduce speeding and hence the number of road traffic collisions. The scheme is supported by West Midlands Police, who will operate and enforce it. The cameras on London Road will cover the route from Allard Way to the A56, with the Ansty Road cameras covering from Sewell Highway to Clifford Bridge Road.
Why are they needed?
Ansty Road and London Road are two of Coventry’s most notorious roads for serious collisions. Ansty Road saw 32 accidents over a three year period, resulting in two fatalities and five serious injuries. In a similar time frame, London Road saw 22 accidents including three fatalities and six serious injury road traffic collisions.
