Leicester speed camera sites begin enforcement

The Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland Road Safety Partnership (LLRRSP) has brought three mothballed speed camera sites back online. The cameras, which are all in Leicester, were taken out of operation between 2016 and 2018 to allow for highways engineering works.

The cameras are located on: A594 Aylestone Road, near Leicester Royal Infirmary, A594 Welford Road, near Leicester prison and A6 London Road, near Saxby Street. As the final phase of the digital upgrade from 35mm wet film all three of these cameras now use more efficient technology similar to the other speed camera sites across Leicester and Leicestershire.

Jonathan Clarkson, LLRRSP spokesperson, said, “The digital upgrade of these three cameras means our speed enforcement at these locations is more reliable as it uses wireless technology. In addition,the London Road and Welford Road cameras now also enforce red traffic light violations along with excessive speed.”

“In the past 5 years (2017-21) the London Road camera site has seen 2 serious and 13 slight injury casualties, Welford Road 5 serious and 8 slight injuries and Aylestone Road 16 slight injuries.”

The first enforcement (red light) camera was installed in 1990 at the A4560 Narborough Road/Fullhurst Avenue in Leicester.

The majority of Leicester and Leicestershire’s speed and red light camera sites became operational between 1991 and 2005.

Our most recent camera site, on the A6/Loughborough Road near Quorn, became operational in 2012.
