CUMBERNAULD'S A8011 Wilderness Brae will shortly see new central reservation barriers, after a tragic accident which cost the lives of three men, earlier this month.

However, suggestions have also been made that the road will soon boast a permanent speed camera, as North Lanarkshire Council confirmed that the new barrier will be installed by October.

Responsibility of speed cameras and their installation lays with Strathclyde Safety Camera Partnership, who told Cumbernauld Media: "Wilderness Brae is already a mobile camera speed enforcement site which has been enforced regularly since its inception in 2010.

A spokesman for the Strathclyde Safety Camera Partnership added: “In the light of the latest tragic incident there will be further discussion on speed enforcement and other road safety measures on this road with Strathclyde Police and North Lanarkshire Council."

The speed camera debate follows the success of the Wilderness Brae Appeal, in its petitioned campaign, to get central reservation barriers installed down Wilderness Brae following the death of three men in the three car park pile-up on Wednesday 1st August.

Despite there being no definite decision on a permanent speed camera installation, the Wilderness Brae Appeal has said regardless that they welcome the installation of a central reservation barrier.
