Row Over Fate Of Northamptonshire Speed Camera

As part of road improvements on the A14 in Northamptonshire, a redundant speed camera is being removed at a cost of 5,500.

This is happening despite calls for it to be reactivated.

The speed camera positioned at junction 8 is due to be removed, despite another camera at junction 9 remaining in place

The cameras were switched off three years ago when every fixed camera in Northamptonshire was mothballed after the county council removed funding.

Originally, the local Conservative Administration encouraged the camera housings to remain in place to act as a visual deterrent to speeding drivers.

A local opposition Labour politician commented "We have long argued that speed cameras should be turned back on, as we know that they make a significant contribution to safety across our county."

He added "At a time of economic hardship, it's an absolute disgrace that this Tory Administration is planning to spend 5,500 removing each speed camera it foolishly allowed to be switched off in the first place."
