Seven Hull speed camera sites that were taken out of action have been brought back.

The decision follows Hull City Council’s move to rejoin Safer Roads Humber’s safety initiative.

In 2011 the council left the scheme, which runs both mobile and fixed cameras, in a bid to save around £200,000 per annum. But the local authority rejoined last month and the camera sites were brought back during April 27 after a review, leaving 12 others still unused.

The city council chose the sites for the Safer Roads scheme to reactivate after looking at the sites’ present enforcement requirements.

Drivers will now be scrutinised by mobile cameras along Saltshouse Road, Marfleet Avenue, Anlaby Road, Thomas Clarkson Way, Bude Road/John Newton Way, Marfleet Avenue and Freetown Way.

Safer Roads Humber’s Ruth Gore said other sites could also return to action on the council’s say-so if they meet its criteria.

Motorists can also still anticipate seeing mobile speed camera operations along the Highways England-run A63.
