Problems with lorries

  • do you have a problem with heavy lorries using unsuitable roads?
  • are lorries using the roads through your area or village as a short cut?

The problem must be really serious, not just a nuisance.

It is unlikely that a lorry count of less than 30 per day (7am to 6pm) would be put on the countywide list for further investigation.

When a problem is reported it will be assessed and ranked in priority order. Priority depends on:

  • the number of lorries using the road compared to local traffic volume
  • whether the lorries cause accidents and travel too fast
  • the nature of the road and the extent of development next to the road (particularly if there are schools or health centres).
