Speed Monitoring

Speeding is a concern throughout the parish for many residents.  The Parish Council works with Buckinghamshire Councillors, Transport for Bucks and Thames Valley Police to address traffic issues throughout the parish.

The Parish Council is lobbying Bucks Council for:

  • traffic calming in Worlds End Lane in order to support a reduction in the speed limit from 40 to 30
  • a solution to deter HGVs using the village as a rat run

Speed enforcement is the responsibility of Thames Valley Police, the Parish Council has access to the following methods of monitoring speed in the parish and the results of these are shared with the Police.

Community Speedwatch

Speedwatch Equipment is available to be used by the community.  The vehicle registration and speed is recorded and passed to Thames Valley Police who can then write to the owner of the vehicle.  The equipment needs to be manned by 2-3 volunteers and the Parish Council would like to hear from anyone who would be willing to give up some time to help, full training will be provided.  Please contact the Clerk in the first instance.

Sentinel

The Wendover Local Area Forum provided Sentinel equipment for use in the parishes, the Sentinel camera records video footage of speeding vehicles and records the date and time taken as well as the vehicle registration and speed.  Again volunteers will be needed to man this equipment, please contact the Clerk if you would like to take part.

Mobile Vehicle Activated Sign (MVAS)

Weston Turville Parish Council has access to two Mobile Vehicle Activated Signs (MVAS).  The MVAS is usually put up in various locations throughout the parish for 2 weeks at a time to collect data on the volumes and speed of traffic passing it.  

The Parish Council has recently installed three additional ground screws which are located in Church Lane (near the junction with The Glebe), Worlds End Lane and Brook End, following reports from local residents who are concerned about speeding in these areas. 

The data collected is shared with Thames Valley Police who are responsible for speed enforcement.  

Details of recent speed monitoring can be seen below, 
(Note: 85th percentile - this means that 85% of vehicles are travelling at this speed or lower)
