A34 technology enhancements
New technology on the A34 between the M4 at Chieveley and the M40 at Wendlebury.
We propose to introduce CCTV cameras and driver information systems at several locations along the A34 between the M4 and the M40. We will also be installing “vehicle detection loops”. These are loops in the road that use radar technology to detect when traffic is building or slowing down. They then activate electronic message signs accordingly.
This area suffers from congestion and the scheme is needed to help us ease this, as well as to manage incidents more effectively. The aims of this scheme are to ease congestion, improve safety and improve incident management.
