Cameras to tackle queues
A CONGESTION-BUSTING £100,000 is being spent on new remote traffic cameras in a bid to get Swansea moving.
The city council is planning to install traffic wi-fi technology at key sites throughout the city where traffic levels are high.
The cameras will connect to the authority's main traffic control room and will give officers a better view of what's happening at peak times.
The £100,000 investment in the equipment will also include the upgrading of cameras at existing sites.
Sites for the new cameras include Eastbank Way, Fabian Way, Mansel Street, Alexandra Road, Carmarthen Road, Hafod, and at the Liberty Stadium.
Ten new cameras are expected to be installed and will be added to the 30 cameras the council currently has access to.
June Burtonshaw, cabinet member for place, said: "It's vital that the council continues to look at new and innovative ways to monitor and manage congestion."
