Teresa Ciano, Partnership Manager, GoSafe added, “GoSafe will administer the offences of the average speed camera system when they are live.  There will be a period after the roadside equipment goes in where we will be establishing and testing the IT and communications infrastructure to ensure the accuracy of the equipment.  Until the cameras are fully live to issue notices of intended prosecution, GoSafe mobile enforcement of speeding, not wearing seatbelts and using mobile phones will continue to support our North Wales Police colleagues to encourage safe driving on the routes.”

Councillor Donald Milne, Conwy Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Roads and Facilities, said: “Incidents of dangerous driving involving excessive speed have been of great concern to the local community for some time. We’ve been working closely with Denbighshire County Council and North Wales Police to find ways to tackle the problem, and we’ve worked with GoSafe to plan the implementation of the safety camera scheme. I’m very pleased to see the cameras now being installed and tested, and look forward to the scheme going live at the earliest opportunity.”

Councillor Brian Jones, Denbighshire’s Cabinet Lead Member for Highways, Planning and Sustainable Travel, said: “We are delighted that the bid for funding has been successful. There have been concerns locally about the fact that the long stretches of open roads in this area is a magnet for motorists wanting to test their speed and ability.  Whilst we fully understand that the natural beauty of this part of the world is an attraction, we want to make sure that motorists travel on our roads safely by reducing their speeds, adhering to warning and information signs located along the roads and considering the safety of other road users. Introducing road safety measures is only one part of the answer. We need people to modify their driving behaviour on our roads, to protect their own safety and that of others.”
