Speed Camera Stem

Reported via desktop in the Carriageway Defect category anonymously at 10:57, Tuesday 5 January 2021

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

On the A4 in Shirehampton heading into Bristol close to the junction of Hung Lane / M5 Bridge is a speed camera . About 2 years ago work was done to replace the vertical stem with a much taller steel beam . The contractor left the old steel box beam alongside the camera which is located in the mid lane 4 way traffic flow .It is about 10 feet long . A plastic red hazard fence unit was secured to the camera . This is a road safety hazard. Can it be arranged for it to be moved and be disposed of safely ? I sense the contractor failed to remove it at end of the job . Thank you. Regret you have no sub element to allow me to record issue as "Speed Camara " issue

  • Hello I drove past the site yesterday 27 January and the steel stem of the speed camera was still lying in the central separation paving area. What does it take to send a truck to lift , remove it to a scrap yard? Over 3 weeks have gone now? What has your 3 week investigation discovered? Richard
