HS2 traffic impact cameras
About the project
This project will deliver up to 20 traffic cameras across the county to assess and report on the impact of HS2 construction traffic. The cameras will be introduced across 2019 and 2020.
The requirement of the additional Automated Traffic Information Systems (ATIS) cameras has come through the construction of High Speed 2 (HS2Ltd) which impacts a large part of Buckinghamshire. Many of the major routes in the County will be subjected to a large number of construction vehicles over a period of approximately 8 years. Therefore the Council requested support from the government to manage the Local Highways Network.
This project will aim to provide:
- the council with the ability to observe and report on HS2 construction traffic and potentially minimise its impact
- additional mitigation for the areas which are heavily impacted by HS2 construction traffic
This scheme will be delivered across 2019 and 2020.
Buckinghamshire County Council is currently working with HS2 Ltd to understand when each construction route will be used and the volumes of traffic this will entail.
This will then inform where the cameras will be most effectively located.
Assessment of the most suitable locations to take place. Cameras to be purchased and linked to the Transport for Buckinghamshire existing network.
