A woman whose mother was killed in a road crash has persuaded a council to apply for funds to install average speed cameras on it.
Whitney Hughes’ mother Gillian Williams died on the A5183 between Redbourn and St Albans in Hertfordshire in 2019.
Ms Hughes has campaigned for safety measures along the road, but needed a “constituted” organisation to bid for money to do it.
Redbourn Parish Council said it would apply to the county’s Road Safety Fund.
Ms Hughes said: “I feel relieved something is finally going to be done and I truly hope my mum is the last person to lose their life on Redbourn Road.”
inquest heard. Mr Southwood was also killed.
The coroner said he would ask police to investigate whether average speed cameras would help.
Mr Lloyd said she put forward “compelling evidence” and that an application would be welcomed.
However, they have to be submitted by a constituted organisation, such as a local authority, as private individuals are unable to apply.
Redbourn Parish Council member David Mitchell said it “fully supports” her initiative, while St Albans City and District Council said it would back the application and take guidance from the police.
