A52 fatal crash sparks campaign for permanent speed cameras – UPDATE

03.12.16 – A petition calling for permanent speed cameras on the A52 has been launched by Bramcote resident Tony Smith following the death of two young men in a horrific collision.  It appears that speed was a major factor and a number of residents have contacted me to say that they have complained for some time about speeding on the A52.

I don’t hesitate in giving Tony Smith and Bramcote’s Councillors my support with their petition for permanent speed cameras, particularly on the stretch from Bramcote Island and Priory Roundabout.  I have already written to Highways England who manage the A52 (a copy of my letter is below) and I have contacted the local police inspector, Steve Wragg who confirms his support for permanent speed cameras.

If you would like to support Tony Smith’s petition, which I will present to Parliament, please print off a copy below and either send it back to my office or hand it back to Tony or a Bramcote councillor.

UPDATE – 28.02.17

Anna Soubry MP presented Tony Smith’s petition to Parliament on Tuesday 28th February.  The petition amassed over 1,600 signatures and called for Highways England to take action to stop speeding on the A52 between Bramcote Island and Priory Island. The Department for Transport must now respond.
