Cameras installed in place of fixed obstacles at the Hills and Vales Low Traffic Neighbourhood in Greenwich have issued 1,876 Penalty Charge Notices since introduction.
Cameras were installed on Crooms Hill in July with a two week grace period. Warnings totalled 1,353.
Information comes from written questions at a full Greenwich Council meeting tonight (30th September)
Total income from fines is £38,370. All income from parking and moving traffic offences can only be spent on operational costs and then transport projects. It cannot be used to plug funding in other departments and areas of the budget.
The standard London fine for moving traffic offences is £130, which is halved if paid with 14 days.
Expected income from fines in Greenwich at £65 would be £121,940.
That’s quite a difference to £38,370 gross income so far seen. It could be non-payment, appeals, overheads or other reasons. None are given.
There’s a project in need of transport funding very close to the Greenwich LTN. Cycle Highway 4 is still not open despite being all but complete, due to funding issues with Creek Road swing bridge. TfL’s finance issues have held up work.
They’ll be a post on that to follow.
