It has been some time since we asked for a speed camera to be installed in Marley Hill but at last, patience seems to have paid off.
We are pleased to say that the Northumbria Police Safer Roads Initiative is to target Church Street with a mobile camera.
“There is a huge amount of traffic coming through Marley Hill every day and too many vehicles are above the 30mph speed limit,” said Cllr Alan Ord.
“The mobile camera will be important in reminding people that the village is a residential area and people must drive with care, and within the speed limit.
“We would like a permanent camera but a mobile one is an important step in the right direction.”
