Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council has extended its use of the Videalert digital video platform, adding to enforcement of the red route on A678, Copy Nook to Furthergate Link Road. Cameras have been added to enforce parking regulations on the keep clears outside Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School on West Park Road. The aim of this project is to improve road safety in the area and reduce congestion.
The council worked closely with the school to ensure the new arrangements were effectively communicated, liaising with all stakeholders, including elected members, local residents, parents and school staff. Warning letters were issued before the system went live in October 2019. The cameras have already delivered a significant reduction in contraventions with the benefit of enhancing public safety and reducing congestion.
Blackburn with Darwen council is now considering further locations where the use of digital enforcement can improve the free movement of traffic, road safety and air quality.
