Drivers warned about new average speed cameras in Birmingham’s Middleway corridor

DRIVERS are being warned average speed cameras have been installed on the A4540 Middleway corridor near Birmingham City Centre.
The cameras have been put on the 2.8km section from Five Ways to Haden Circus, covering Islington Row Middleway, Lee Bank Middleway and Belgrave Middleway.
Following the collision, the council received a petition signed by thousands of people calling for safety measures on that stretch of road.
There was a fatal crash on the Belgrave Middleway underpass in the early hours of December 17 last year in which six people died.
After awaiting the completion of a police investigation and subsequent coroner’s inquest, Birmingham City Council announced that average speed cameras would be installed to enforce the existing 40mph limit.
Once the cameras have been in place for 12 months, an evaluation will be carried out to assess their effectiveness and further options will then be considered if they are deemed to be needed.
