Dear Cllr Stephanos Ioannou,
Thank you for your enquiry.
The department is always interested in any reasonable and viable measures to control excess speed on the borough’s roads. However, the addition of a speed camera is not something I can offer any assurances over. In the capital these are placed and maintained by TfL, not by boroughs. No new cameras have been placed on our streets over a period going back many years and I understand that TfL’s review of their speed camera criteria remains ongoing. Residents who find that disappointing might consider raising the issue with their assembly member representatives.
The Council continues to target road safety interventions on the streets where most injuries occur and to monitor road safety and vehicle speeds across its network.
