Question

Your answer to question 1911/2012 does not make clear what plans you have to roll out the use of average speed cameras in 20mph areas? Can you tell me which boroughs are using these cameras on their roads in the current financial year, using funding from Transport for London?

TfL has recently announced a programme (circa £40 million) to upgrade aging safety cameras (with 'wet' film technology) to modern digital safety cameras. This will ensure that the safety benefits delivered by the existing safety camera network in London continue to be secured in future.

As part of this TfL will also work with boroughs to review their safety camera network to ensure the maximum safety benefit is achieved. TfL has already written to all boroughs requesting meetings to discuss their safety camera requirements for the future. TfL will be able to update you once these discussions are complete.
