Probably recording traffic in and out of New Brighton. You can't move down there weekends any more. Summer looks like it will be hot to trot. I live in New Brighton and have given up already.
i agree, despite the fact i live here, i've given up going down there, half of birkenhead ends up down there (and the dips) on a nice day, it was once a nice place to go on a nice day because it was quite empty, not anymore.
It's a traffic count ready to identify the areas on the Wirral they are going to set up for congestion charging (it costs money to collect so is only worth doing in areas with a high volume of traffic). This will be introduced when they start charging tolls for the M53 (the main reason all the roundabouts now have ( or will soon have) traffic lights on them).
a] roundabouts with traffic lights is a stupid idea
b] why then are these stupid boxes on not so busy roads such as belvidere road in liscard
c] tolls for the M53 will be a silly idea, the side streets will just get busy as f**k.
d] there should be one on Warren Drive, and a couple of speed cameras, boy-racers treat this road like a drag strip. there's been countless times i've nearly been hit or other people have nearly been hit. there's a childrens nursery on this road at the crest of the hill and i've seen utter kno*heads go past at at least 60mph while kids are around, it's stupid, in fact, i'm now going to write to the council and police and actually ask them to put speed cameras up here or at least an undercover patrol a few evenings a month.
