Works to relocate two speed cameras in the city will take place between Tuesday 19th and Friday 22nd September 2017.
As part of the speed camera digitisation process, speed cameras across the county and city are being upgraded with the new technology. The technology provides a more efficient camera management process by removing the need for film replacement and maintenance, allowing the Police to reassign staff resource to other policing matters.
A review of the city sites has confirmed it is necessary to move the following two cameras:
Location 1 – Nottingham Road, Spondon, near Anglers’ Lane will be moved approximately 35 metres.
Location 2 – 590 Nottingham Road, Chaddesden will be moved 250 metres along the road to a new site opposite Cleveland Avenue.
The moves are necessary due to the new technology being rear facing, so need to be moved to avoid hills or corners so that check marks on the road can be properly aligned. Both camera sites have been surveyed and are the most feasible in terms of road layout, footway space, low resident impact and power availability, and will continue to provide an important road safety benefit by helping to manage speed along a busy route through Spondon and Chaddesden.
The works will begin during the off peak period on Tuesday 19th September, and the cost of these upgrades is covered by the Derby and Derbyshire Road Safety Partnership.
