MVAS SIGNS

 We own three Moveable Vehicle Activated Speed Signs and these are in operation on various roads in the village, with more sites being approved shortly. The units record vehicle speed, the time and date, 24 hours a day. The data can be download for analysis. The data can also be sent to the Police for targeted enforcement action.

During a 70-day period in Buntings Path the MVAS unit recorded 33,000 vehicle movements, of which around 1,000 of those movements speed was recorded above the 30 mile per hour speed limit.

  More data will be available on this site in the future.

TWENTY IS PLENTY IN BURWELL 

 

Adopted by the Parish Council as part of a national campaign.

 Reducing your speed increases safety for Pedestrians, Cyclists, Equestrian and other Motorists.
