A10 average speed cameras – 1st month results
During the 1st month of the A10 Enfield Borough average speed cameras 📸 on average are catching 186 speeding drivers each and every day.
The community campaigning was worthwhile!
Over the years the A10 has seen some of the worst speeding across most of London and indeed the country.
1st Anniversary of A10 Operation Vision Zero
Today marks one year since the A10 Traffic Police Operation ‘Vision Zero’ commenced. In that time we have seen a significant number of traffic enforcements, cars seized and arrests. Their action is saving lives and keeping the road safer and quieter. Huge thank you to Detective Supt Andy Cox and the Traffic Police team.
Enfield/Edmonton A10 speeding mentioned at No.10 briefing
At the No.10 briefing today the Home Secretary referenced the 134mph speeding on the Enfield/Edmonton A10. Underlines why the Traffic Police Operation ‘Vision Zero’ and average speed cameras 📸 we campaigned for were so important – in catching these irresponsible, dangerous, selfish drivers.
The ‘A10 Safer Junction’s’ campaign has now had its first success with improvements starting on Monday (July 8th) at the Landbeach/Milton junction. The petition campaign was well supported with over 1,200 people signing and was directly credited with starting the consultation process for improvements.
Two schemes were consulted on. The chosen design as pictured will take 8 weeks to complete. It will create a new pedestrian and cycle crossing on the A10 junction between Milton and Landbeach
The scheme is great news for pedestrians and cyclists as it will offer quick and direct path across the junction. It increases visibility of and for pedestrians and cyclists waiting to cross.
One of the reasons we launched the campaign for action this and the Landbeach-Waterbeach junction was both have a high accident rate. Once the improvements are in place we will see if further action is needed. Last year the Conservatives put a new cycleway and footpath between Milton and Landbeach (something the local community have wanted for decades) and this is an additional welcome step. Pictured with local campaigner Sarah Smart where the footpath currently ends.
To further aid safety solar stud lighting will be laid along the edges of the whole dual use path. New street lighting will be provided near the crossing points.
This latest success follows on from securing a reduced 50mph limit along the A10 and street lights and traffic lights at the Denny End junction.
Today at 11am I presented the A10 Safer Junctions petition signed by over 1,200 local residents to Cllr Mac McGuire (Highways Portfolio Holder) at Cambridgeshire County Council Shire Hall.
The petition calls for action to make the two junctions at Landbeach/Milton and Waterbeach/Landbeach safer.
I am delighted by the response that we have had this year to the petition campaign that we launched in February. It is clear that both these junctions have been of serious concern to local residents for many years. We must see action. Last year we succeeded in the reduced 50mph limit on the A10. Now we must get these two junctions improved once and for all. This petition sends a clear message to Highways in the call to action. Thank you to all the local residents who supported the campaign.
Many residents have commented that the junctions’ layouts are unclear and confusing. The petition calls for action and funding to improve the two junctions in consultation with the local community.
The petition will go before the next meeting of the County Council Cabinet on September 10th.
