Traffic Speed Through the Village - The speed of traffic through the village, both on the A466 and Devauden Road is a frequent topic of conversation.

a) Operators from the Camera Safety Unit visit to monitor the situation and take action as necessary. The number of visits made and the time spent on location is determined by the results of the previous 6 months. So, if the location is found to be a high risk during one period, the number of visits and the time spent on each visit is increased for the following period.

The A466 recordings are now made from a van on the nursery car park and a van is also used on Devauden Road. 

b) A Speedwatch group of volunteers started in St Arvans in November 2015 and shares its data with the police.  The group would welcome further volunteers.

The scheme operates in 20, 30 and 40 mph zones only and registration numbers are not recorded until above the legal speed limit + 1% e.g. 34 mph in a 30mph limit.

If speeding drivers have had a second warning letter within 12 months, a third incident would normally result in a visit by a police officer

The locations chosen for St. Arvans are:

  • The fountain (allowing drivers to be noted from 3 directions)
  • The bus stop near children’s nursery (two directions)
  • Near the BT box on Devauden Road. (two directions)
