Next step for Holderness Road ‘accident hotspot’ junction cameras to…

New cameras are set to be installed to try and stop drivers running red lights at one of Hull's most accident-prone junctions following the awarding of a contract. Hull City Council has awarded a contract worth around £240,448 to install the cameras at the Holderness Road and Mount Pleasant junction. Figures showed that eight of the 23 collisions recorded there in the last five years were due to drivers ignoring traffic signals. Council Transport Portfolio Holder Cllr Mark Ieronimo said discouraging drivers from running red lights would save lives at the accident hotspot. Funding from Safer Roads Humber is set to see the cameras installed at the junction which is consistently in the top five in the city for crashes resulting in injuries. One of the eight accidents caused by disobeying traffic signals was serious while the others were deemed slight. READ MORE: Concern over faded Kingswood roundabout markings- but council say
