Brighton's Lewes Road speed camera to be switched back on
10:28am Wednesday 13th June 2012 in News
A speed camera on a busy dual carriageway which has been out of action for six months is to be turned back on.
The unit monitoring vehicles using the A270 Lewes Road in Brighton has been hooded since December 15 in preparation for extending the 30mph zone further along the dual carriageway.
The reduction in the speed limit from 40mph to 30mph between Natal Road and Moulsecoomb Way was part of a raft of changes introduced by Brighton and Hove City Council in January, A spokeswoman for the council said: “The camera will be uncovered in a couple of weeks in response to local community requests.
“In order to be fair to the motorist, enforcement will not commence immediately to give drivers the chance to adapt their driving behaviour accordingly.
“Once a short period of settling |in has gone by, we would look to enforce the camera, in line with |the rest of the safety cameras on the network.”
