 A16 to get speed cameras after eight deaths in five years

A Lincolnshire road is to get average speed cameras after eight deaths in its first five years.

The A16 will have the cameras installed on a stretch between Spalding and Crowland.

The road, which was extended to Peterborough in 2010, has also seen 15 serious injuries.

John Siddle from the Lincolnshire Road Safety Partnership said some drivers used the road like a race track.

He told the BBC: “Because everything is cut back and it is a very flat area of the county, there are no fixed points to gauge distance and speed of other vehicles approaching.

“People are going for overtakes at high speed and what we call injudicious overtakes – which means it’s going to go wrong.”

A similar scheme used on the A15 near Lincoln saw the average number of drivers speeding drop from an average of 175 per week to 17.

The average speed system will be installed on an eight-mile stretch of the A16 from the junction with A1175 near Spalding and the roundabout south of Crowland.
