The Department for Transport announced in September 2020 that they would be fully enacting the remaining elements of Part 6 of the Traffic Management Act (TMA), permitting local authorities outside of London to use approved camera devices to enforce moving traffic contraventions, such as yellow box junctions and banned turns. The Civil Enforcement of Road Traffic Contraventions (Approved Devices, Charging Guidelines and General Provisions) (England) Regulations 2022 and The Civil Enforcement of Road Traffic Contraventions (Representations and Appeals) (England) Regulations 2022 come into force on May 31st.
Principal Engineer, Tina Glover’s presentation at TRANSPORT Smart Class, Midlands 2022 offered a deep dive into what these changes mean for local authorities, the lessons learnt from Marston Holdings’ extensive experience in delivering moving traffic enforcement, and guidance on other benefits including environmental, congestion management, improved journey times, increased safety, and cleaner air.
By introducing the enforcement of moving traffic contraventions and utilising the latest ANPR camera technology and video analytics, Tina showed us why authorities will be in a far better position to manage and improve their local road network and deliver key objectives outlined in their local transport plans. Her presentation case studied the Feasibility stage surveys commissioned by LB Lewisham, Barnet Council’s East Finchley Engagement on Parking, the Hammersmith and Fulham Traffic Congestion and Pollution Reduction Scheme and School Streets. Tina concluded by highlighting the importance of supporting communities through integrated technology-driven solutions and was subsequently joined by Project Centre colleagues, Graham Storrie and Olaseni Koya, for Marston’s hosted roundtable sessions with all delegates in attendance.
