The London Safety Camera Partnership magazine says that there are 1,000 roads in London which fit the DfT casualty criteria for having a safety camera. Can you provide a breakdown of these sites by borough and outline the current timetable for placing fixed cameras at these sites?

This information is set out in Appendix B.There is as yet no site-specific timetable for installation, however, the London Safety Camera Partnership plans to install at least 50 new camera sites a year, giving priority to those sites where the highest number of speed-related casualties have occurred. This is the maximum number of cameras that could be installed each year within the budget available to the Partnership.TfL has invested about £158m in road safety (£133m of it on engineering) in the 5 years 2000 to 2005 and have seen killed and seriously injured casualties fall from 6,117 in 2000 to 3,650 in 2005.
