Hindhead Tunnel control centre built

A control centre has been constructed to oversee the Hindhead Tunnel, which may cause safety signage to be introduced more rapidly in the area.

It has been created to exclusively monitor the £371 million transport link and has been built on the outside of its southbound portal. In any emergency situations, messages will be shown on signs near the tunnel while being aired on FM radio, reports the Petersfield Post.

Senior project manager Paul Arnold told the newspaper: "When something happens in the tunnel there is an alert on the screen, which gives operators a choice of safety plans.

"Once an incident is detected, it automatically triggers a 40mph speed limit."

Twelve staff will monitor the cameras in teams of two people, who will work 12-hour shifts.

The Morpeth Herald has reported that hundreds of people have signed a petition to support a Widdrington farm in its dispute over safety signs.

More than 500 people have signed the document, which is aiming to fight Northumberland County Council's demand for four of the Country Barn and Coffee Shop's signs to be taken down.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800640225-ADNFCR
