What appear to be closed circuit TV cameras have just been installed to monitor two busy road junctions in Brigg. One is pointing at the exit from Tesco onto Barnard Avenue, while the other is on Cary Lane, viewing the traffic lights controlling the junction with Barnard Avenue and Ash Grove.
The camera near Tesco follows many complaints about drivers exiting the store and ignoring the "no right turn" restriction - being too lazy to turn left and use the nearby roundabout to come back along the A18, Barnard Avenue.
Coun John Berry, one of the Brigg area's representatives on North Lincolnshire Council, recently took up the case and held talks at officer level, in an effort to get some positive action over road safety concerns.
Quite what the monitoring of the Cary Lane lights is about we haven't yet worked out. Perhaps there have been reports of motorists "jumping the lights."
However, we will contact relevant council staff tomorrow, await their response and hopefully report back with the answer.
