Two road junctions are being observed by mobile CCTV cameras to monitor HS2 construction activity, amid concerns over road safety.

Buckinghamshire Council has used HS2 Assurance funding to buy two mobile CCTV cameras, with contracts to operate and move between different locations over the next five years.

The cameras have initially been positioned at the crossroads at the junction of School Hill and Perry Hill at Calvert and the Keepers Lane junction near Little Missenden on the A413.

Buckinghamshire Council's corporate director for planning, growth and sustainability, Ian Thompson, said: “This is a very welcome initiative and we plan to use the cameras in locations being used by HS2 construction traffic where we have the greatest concerns about road safety and the impact on our local communities.

"We will be monitoring footage from the cameras to check that construction vehicles are using approved lorry routes and to review any relevant reported incidents.”
