A Freedom of Information request to North Wales Police has revealed the highest recorded speeds in Wrexham and North Wales.
The FOI submitted by Wrexham.com asked for a monthly breakdown of the highest recorded speeds by speed cameras in Wrexham for 2012 and 2013.
For 2012 the monthly breakdown shows that over a 12 month period, the highest recorded speeds were along the same stretches of road in Coedpoeth, Mold Road and the A483 in Rossett.
Overall the highest recorded speed in 2012 was 96mph on the A483 Rossett Junction.
In 2013 the highest recorded speed in Wrexham was in August on the A483 Dual Carriageway Junction 7, Rossett, where a speed of 112mph was recorded.
Regular readers of Wrexham.com and our Twitter page will already be aware that the bridge above the Rossett Junction is often monitored by speed cameras in the ‘Go Safe’ partnership vans.
However perhaps the most striking speed on the list, is a recording of 71mph on Ty Gwyn Lane in February where the speed limit is 30mph.
