New CCTV system deployed at accident blackspot in Shropshire

Comments Off on New CCTV system deployed at accident blackspot in Shropshire

A couple of new CCTV surveillance cameras have been installed at a known accident hotspot in Shropshire, a recent news report in the local media has been able to suggest.

A spate of accidents at the Llynclys crossroads on the A483 led both the parish and Shropshire councils to press Highways England for improvements.

In August four children and three adults were injured in a crash at the junction.

Now road engineers have put up cameras on the crossroads.

Highways England route manager for Shropshire, Robert Jaffier said: “We’re working really closely with the parish council and local authority to examine the way traffic travels around the junction. To do this, we have installed some temporary CCTV cameras that will monitor driver behaviour and help us to identify the next steps.”

“Highways England is committed to making roads safer and we are always encouraging safer driving behaviours. We have already reduced the speed limit on this stretch of road and we will continue to work with the local authority and those that use the junction to see what further measures can be put in place.”


One of the key elements enabling Stoke-on-Trent City Council to reduce security costs was remote monitoring.

At CCTV Surveillance, we can offer you this service. We have seen it save countless customers money just like the council due to less staff being needed on patrol and lower insurance costs.

The CCTV Surveillance monitoring centre is staffed 24/7 all year round by highly trained operators, all of whom share a passion for security. They can take immediate action on the video footage that they are alerted to, either by using the intercom link to warn away offenders or calling the police and specified keyholders.

Our top-range systems use the latest digital technology to provide real time viewing and control of cameras via a broadband connection. For further security and information gathering we can provide you with facial recognition CCTV software (including a revolutionary rapid deployment kit) and automatic number-plate recognition.

We provide several other security services as well as remote monitoring, such as our System Takeover, where we can take on the time and responsibility of running and maintaining your existing security system for you. All of our CCTV systems can also integrate with our access control systems. For example, this could allow the automatic opening or barring of doors if a certain person is picked up on the cameras.

If you are worried about the security of your premises, we can perform an in-depth assessment with a full spectrum penetration test that replicates real-life threats – everything from social engineering to lock picking and getting past alarms. We can also provide a smaller physical penetration-only test.
