Work to put in average speed cameras at an accident black-spot in Preston is to begin in September.


Brockholes Brow is the second section of road to see the new yellow speed cameras installed.

London Road was the first strip of road to see the new enforcement, with both sections of the A6 from Walton-le-Dale up into the city centre having the new speed cameras in place.

Lancashire Police have issued an update on how the new speed cameras are progressing.

The cameras at Brockholes Brow will enforce the speed limit from the A59 at Tickled Trout in both directions up and down Brockholes Brow. The cameras are due to be switched on before the end of 2017.

Work has begun at Brockholes Brow to trim back trees ahead of the installation work in September.

Two routes on the outskirts of Preston due to get average speed cameras are seeing their routes modified:

Due to a temporary speed restriction implemented by Lancashire County Council on a section of the A583 Preston New Road, the camera locations have been revised and changes will be made to shorten the route.

Cameras will now cover the A583 Preston New Road (3 miles) between Wrea Green roundabout, through Kirkham bypass to Newton-with-Scales, west of Clifton.

Due to the reduction on the A583 route and a review of casualty data and feedback from local residents, the A565 Southport New Road average speed camera scheme will be extended.

The additional cameras will be installed in the coming weeks, extending the route from Mere Brow through Holmes to the Tarleton crossroads. The route will now cover 3.7 miles.
