Question

Further to MQ 2014/3352, I was disappointed with your response which stated "I have approved a trial for four sets of average speed cameras in London, on the A40, the A316, the A20 and on the Western half of the A406.  They will be installed later this year. Results from the trial, including whether they meet public acceptability, are due in 2017.  Further locations for average speed cameras will be determined by the results of this trial and the A10 will be considered as part of this process."

Local residents are suffering now and cannot wait until 2017 before consideration is given to long term preventative measures. What long term action are you taking now to alleviate this issue for local residents who are fed up with the noise and danger posed by this irresponsible behaviour and who are very concerned that a tragedy may occur?

The new MPS Roads and Transport Policing Command (RTPC), jointly funded by TfL and the MPS, is dedicated to policing London's roads and surface transport network.  With road safety as a core priority, more than 2,300 officers will make the MPS RTPC the largest single police command in the UK. This will give the MPS an unprecedented ability to improve road safety through a flexible and intelligence-led approach to enforcement, education and engagement.

RTPC officers are deployed on an intelligence led basis to ensure that speed reduction activities take place in locations where the risk of collisions is known to be highest.

TfL funded MPS officers regularly work alongside officers from the MPS Enfield Borough Operational Command Unit to carry out operations along the A10. In the period of December 2014 to February 2015, 367 Notices of Intended Prosecution and 11 Fixed Penalty Notices were issued along the A10, Great Cambridge Road.

Making our streets safer for all who use them remains a key priority for me. TfL will continue to work with the police to identify preventative action that can be taken in this particular area.
