“Anyone else noticed a couple of temporary CCTV cameras have been erected, one by the Arches leisure centre and one on Royal Hill.
Anyone know why? They are yellow poles and are strapped to lampposts.”
Paul has answered this one for me, as well as providing photographic evidence for us to enjoy. He thinks they’re traffic monitoring cameras. There have been some grumpy letters through his door complaining about the amount of traffic up Hyde Vale and Crooms Hill ( he don’t think it’s bad, although Royal Hill often is) and he thinks this is part of traffic monitoring as a result. The little box at the bottom that presumably stores the digital pics mentions traffic monitoring systems.
Where I still don’t see any CCTV is the roundabout under the A102M which sees so many accidents – we could actually do with some there.
