Project EDWARD visit to the EVO Triangle

As part of ProjectEDWARD 2021, the team visited North Wales with our Deputy Managing Director Geoff Collins CEng, GoSafe Partnership Manager Teresa Ciano and Chief Inspector Jon Aspinall of North Wales Police, to examine the new SPECS average speed system installed in the area known as the EVO Triangle.

The triangle, made up of stretches of the A5, A543 and B4501 in Conwy and Denbighshire, is popular among car enthusiasts because of its stunning scenery and race track-style bends and undulations, but the route has suffered four deaths since 2012, with residents also concerned that the roads felt unsafe. Therefore, local Police and the Wales Road Casualty Reduction Partnership, GoSafe, commissioned Jenoptik to install average speed cameras to address these problems, covering nearly 40km of the iconic route.
