Concerned councillors will highlight their case for traffic calming technology in a bid to stop speeding in a Norwich suburb to a police leader.

Norfolk’s police and crime commissioner Lorne Green will speak with Costessey Town Council members and Norfolk County Councillor Tim East in a private discussion on April 27 about their desire for two average speed cameras on West End.

Mr East said it will be a fact-finding mission for Mr Green who will be shown the Costessey road which is a 20mph zone.

Mr East, who represents Costessey, said: “We want to try and indicate to Lorne Green that there is a speeding problem on West End. Average speed cameras are the solution.”

Patrick O’Connor, Costessey Town Council chairman, said the road, which has houses either side, is already inundated with traffic which would get worse after the opening of the Northern Distributor Road.
