Weight Restricted Turns on A515


Weight Restricted Turns on A515

Published 5 April 2019

… on the A515 at Yoxall, Kings Bromley and Woodend Lane there has been a significant reduction of HGV traffic on the A515 and A513. The police have taken seriously the monitoring of the junctions but have to rely heavily on the local communities for information. The local Speedwatch team has been out at the A513 and Woodend Lane junctions and sends photographs of offending vehicles to the police through the Speedwatch coordinator. If you could help by taking photos yourself please forward them to Allan Howard on alan.how8@btinternet.com and I will pass them on to the police. An online camera will soon be installed on the Royal Oak which will catch all offenders.

It has been noticed that in order to circumvent the TROs some lorries have been using the A515, A51, Eastern Avenue route to travel between the A50 and A38. At meetings on 5th April with Lomas Distribution and Tarmac, representatives of YTAG (Yoxall Traffic Action Group) and Kings Bromley Parish Council received assurances that their liveried HGVs would be instructed not to use this route which they accept as both unsafe and uneconomic. These companies are then added to a growing list including Wincanton, Shell, Tesco and JCB who have already made this commitment.
