Councillors have agreed three locations to place a speed indicating device in Boston.

Boston Town Area Committee members discussed the device, which was purchased by the group following a previous meeting in September.

The camera cost the committee £3,198 and is planned to be used across six locations at a cost of £847 this year, plus three per cent extra per annum following that.

A total of 15 roads were put forward and councillors voted unanimously on the first three locations – Freiston Road and Spilsby Road which each had two nominations, and London Road.

These roads will feature the speed indicating device on a rolling basis – with the final plan to move the camera 26 times a year.

On how to decide which roads to feature, Coun Nigel Welton said: “I think perception is more important than actual figures.

“Perception is what people think or say - I think there are two streets on here that more members of the community have requested.”

Councillors will look at where they get requests from the most to decide on 
the last three at a future meeting.
