Speed Camera Site Compliance Powburn

Speed Camera Site Compliance

Website visitors may recall that there was a delay in siting the road traffic camera van in Powburn (see Stop Speeding! Update (Oct 2017). Since then, Neil Snowden (Principal Programme Officer, Technical Services, Northumberland County Council) has had plans drawn up for replacement of signage on the A697 in Powburn. The information was forwarded by County Councillor Wendy Pattison to Councillor Robbie Burn (Chair, Hedgeley Parish Council) who has subsequently submitted it for publication to keep residents up to date with developments.

County Cllr update

  • A697 undergoing programme of schemes to improve road safety between Powburn and Shawdonhill, consisting of signage and road marking improvements with any necessary vegetation clearance and gully clearing.
  • Speeding through Powburn village an issue of concern, with camera van visiting area. A vibration monitor had been installed in a residents house on main road through Powburn to measure noise level/vibration of passing traffic. The noise level had been analysed with no significant readings, suggesting the red strips outside the home are not causing vibration issues. A PV2 survey which monitors footpath and pedestrian movement to also be carried out.
