Speed Monitoring Devices A52

Good Evening Malcolm,

Our quarterly Community Action Team meeting held this evening welcomed the detailed plans for monitoring devices along the A52 in Bramcote/Beeston.

The meeting however had hoped that a commencement date for their installation would by now have been announced.

I write therefore with the hope that a date can be offered for the work to begin.

I am copying this e-mail to our Member Anna Soubry asking that she may bring what now must be seen as a delay, to the attention of the Secretary of State for Transport for his if necessary intervention to expedite this welcome initiative by Highways England. 

Good wishes,



  1. Thanks Martin for sending your email.
    Feel free to send my comments to HE and Anna. My comments I think represent the true feeling of Bramcote residents who WANT ACTION.
    Kicking the can down the road for 6 years by HE is not good enough


    1. Just a small question about Brian Clough Way between the Priory and Sherwin roundabouts. Apart from the deaths in 2017 how many other serious accidents in the previous 10 years have been attributed to speeds in excess of the speed limit?

      I’ve said it before, and others have agreed, that action needs to be taken about bad driving rather than being fixated on speed cameras.

      By the way, I have no objection to cameras provided that they aren’t there as a cash generator. However I do want drivers/vehicles to be investigated for Insurance, MOT, Tax when they ‘ring the bell’.
