Coldean speed camera

A speed camera is set to start enforcing the 30mph limit on Coldean Lane. This limit was cut from 40mph last June, and the camera, which has been in the street for many years, was covered over to enable drivers to get used to the change.

Now the cover has been removed and the camera adjusted for the new speed.

The speed limit was cut following a consultation locally about a 20mph speed limit. Fifty seven per cent of local residents supported the change from 40mph to 30mph.

The camera is intended to deter cars reaching dangerous speeds travelling down the hill. An early vehicle-activated sign warns if a car is exceeding the limit, and of the camera’s presence further on. So it should work.
