Speed Cameras to come back to life

by Roger Harmer on 11 December, 2015

As many people are aware, the old speed cameras in Birmingham haven’t been operational for a while. They were an old, pre-digital design that was expensive and time consuming to operate. Now Birmingham City Council, working in partnership with Solihull MBC, West Midlands Police and the Police and Crime Commissioner, has bought a new Digital Speed Enforcement (DSE) Camera System.

It is anticipated that this camera system will ‘go live’ in Spring 2016, with implementation activities to commence shortly, including a significant public communication exercise.

These cameras will be located at 7 sites (as listed below) across Birmingham and will replace the existing yellow camera housings. The only one in Yardley Constituency is the one on the A45 by the Swan.

A38 Bristol Road approaching Speedwell Road – Into city

A456 Hagley Road approaching Norfolk Road – Out of city

A456 Hagley Road approaching Rotton Park Road – Into city

A4540 New John St West approaching Hospital St – Towards A38

A4540 New John St West towards Hockley Circus

A34 Newtown Row near New John St West – Out of city

A45 Coventry Road at exit from Swan Island underpass – Into city

The notice which was sent out about this incorrectly stated that the speed limit on the A45 by the Swan is 30mph, but the Council have now corrected this and confirmed that it will remain at 40mph.
