A Preston accident blackspot is to see average speed cameras introduced from Thursday (14 December).

Brockholes Brow is the latest section of road across the city, and Lancashire, to see the cameras introduced.

The set of average speed cameras are in place from Junction 31 of the M6 through to the Glenluce Drive junction.

Two girls lost their lives in April last year on the road and a number of other crashes have taken place at the same spot.

The average speed cameras use number plate recognition technology to detect vehicles and calculate their average speed by measuring the time taken to travel between fixed points of a known distance.

New signage is being put up to inform drivers they are entering an average speed zone.

Anyone caught breaching the speed limits is offered a speed awareness course or a fixed penalty (£100 and three points) or depending on the speed a court summons.

Earlier this year the average speed cameras were switched on in London Road, running from the Capitol Centre up to the prison junction.
