At the North Area Committee Meeting on the 15th March ARERA presented data on Speeding
Data from a County Council Speed Camera which was installed on Arbury Road clearly shows that for a two-week measured period maximum traffic speed is consistently twice the speed limit e.g. 40mph instead of the 20mph limit. There are also at least five instances of traffic exceeding 60mph on Arbury Road
We asked what measures are the police pursuing to reduce gross speeding violations on Arbury Road and prevent another fatality?
And whether the committee would include Arbury road speeding on the ‘recommended local areas of concern’ list for the next reporting period of the Policing and Safer Neighbourhoods Agenda item?
The response from the police was that they now have more officers allocated to driving issues and more speed guns. They will look into the problems on Arbury Road
The response from the committee was that the initiative to tackle bad driving on Fen Road would be expanded to cover other main North Cambridge Roads including Arbury Road and it will therefore be included under the ‘local areas of concern’
