According to a response from a Freedom of Information request, a £17,000 portable speed camera, bought to monitor a guided busway, is not being used.

The camera was purchased by Cambridgeshire County Council in August 2017 after three speed-related accidents in the two previous years.

The council says the device had not been needed because there was no evidence of speeding since fixed cameras were installed on sections of the 16-mile (22km) route.

A Cambridge city councillor, Zoe O'Connell, had been monitoring the busway with her own speed gun and found that 95% of bus drivers were travelling at twice the speed limit during two spot checks.

She placed the Freedom of Information request and was shocked by the answer.

A spokesman for the county council said "Since cameras were installed along the Trumpington route, we have not recorded any evidence of speeding therefore the portable camera has not been needed."

The council has indictated that it plans to install extra cameras on the route.

Shocking news. They’ll need to install speed bumps throughout Camberwick Green next.
