Karen Lumley, MP for Redditch County, has today (21 February 2017) welcomed the announcement of £4 million Government investment for traffic beating technology. The Worcestershire Local Authority is one of nineteen councils across England to receive a share of the investment and will spend £300,000 to improve the way traffic incidents are dealt with.
The investment in a cutting edge information sharing system will mean that traffic incidents can be dealt with quickly by highway staff and vehicles.
Karen said: "This is great news for Redditch and Worcestershire. With this investment, motor incidents can be handled safely and quickly, which means less traffic and less disruption to motorists and business.
"Today's announcement shows that the Conservative Government is firmly committed to actively tackling today's problems with modern and innovative solutions. It's great to see such forward thinking at the heart of Government."
