    Installation work for average speed cameras to enforce 50mph zones on the A483 bypass starts today.

    As someone who always does the 50 limit & fed up of other zooming past me I still dont agree with average speed cameras, this shows us that this was a money making scheme by Welsh office all alone.

    Disgusting that this is being imposed on us by south wales assembly with ZERO consultation. So much for democracy.

    Extremely happy with this. They should now look at doing the same on the Llan Y Pwll link Road down to the Industrial Estate. The speeds at which cars, and especially motorcycles, travel on that road is unbelievable.

    They should have put two Go Safe speed camera vans on the Bridge over this 50 limit. They would have raised the £227k cost of this project inside a Week.

    Have any results been published since the start of the air pollution monitoring?

    This has more to do with raising revenue than cutting pollution.

    I don’t necessarily agree with the 50mph limit ( personally I don’t think it will have any real impact on air quality but hey I’m not clever enough to know if it will or won’t until I see some readings ) because if it was for air quality then hybrid / electric cars should be exempt, easy enough to check with ANPR. What I do agree with is if there is a 50 mph limit for all us normal cars drivers we should stick to it so because of that I think the cameras are correct.

    If you can’t drive and see speed limit signs and average speed cameras then you deserve to get fined. Wrexham Council should put cameras on the Box Junctions around Town also. It should raise quite a bit of revenue for the Town. I see it as a tax on the stupid.

    As for the people that say it’s dangerous driving at the 50 mph limit on the A483 hnd your licence back to DVLA please.

    I think people are missing the point here. Something is being forced upon us with no consultation and no evidence of the so called environmental issues. This is pure and simple a money making scheme

    Average Speed cameras are there to make sure people stick to speed limits not to make a wad of cash.

    If you keep to limits you don’t get done. They should put them on ALL roads and stop the idiots from doing stupid speeds.

    Mrs (Councillor) X keeps to limits but the number of times she get flashed and beeped for doing so is unbelievable.

    Luckily the old dear is very switched on (for her age) and normally responds with hand gestures.

    A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom.
