Decision details

Proposed weight restriction from Tay Road to the bridge at a roundabout junction in Thorpe Astley

Decision Maker: Director of Environment and Transport

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Purpose:

A new bridge has been built over the M1, therefore it is proposed that the implementation of a 7.5 tonne weight restriction is imposed from Tay Road to the bridge at the roundabout junction of Meridian Way with Centurion Way and Murby Way. The weight restriction will limit the type of vehicles permitted to use and access the route shown. This will complement the restrictions in the vicinity and keep heavy goods vehicles on more appropriate roads.

Decision:

To implement a 7.5 tonne weight restriction from Tay Road to the bridge at the roundabout junction of Meridian Way with Centurion Way and Murby Way.

Alternative options considered:

The scheme has been subject to public consultation to which no objections were received.
