Speed Camera In Place Thanks To PACT
A speed camera has been installed on a Pershore road thanks to the Partners And Communities (PACT) process.
And residents will be able to learn more about the Station Road camera and other issues in the town at the next PACT meeting.
The meeting will take place at Pershore Town Hall on Thursday 26 May from 7:30pm.
Local policing officer for Pershore Town, PC John Hunter, said: "One of the main issues raised at all PACT meetings has been speeding traffic.
"Directly as a result of members of the public raising the issue, Pershore now has a speed camera site on Station Road which is great news."
The new camera is operated by The Safer Roads Partnership. A representative from the partnership will be speaking at the meeting, about its work and answering any questions the public may have on the issue of speeding traffic and the use of cameras.
Other points raised at the last meeting in January will also be discussed. They include -
- Uneven pavements in the town.
- Youths riding motorcycles on pavements and along alleyways in certain parts of the town.
PC Hunter added: "I would encourage any person who lives or works in Pershore that has an issue they wish to raise, to use this opportunity to ask the panel to deal with it.
The panel may not be aware of the issues that people want dealt with and can't help if they are not raised."
The panel consists of representatives from Police, Worcestershire County Council, Wychavon District Council and Pershore Town Council.
