Good evening all,
I’ve began to notice the level of HGV’s cutting through the village to deliver to the shops because they can’t be bothered to use the ‘construction’ Road.
On two occassions now I have seen Warburtons using Thatcham Ave, to save time delivering to Tesco, and on both occassions I have contacted Warburtons RDC to mention to them what their drivers are doing.
It may sound petty, but how long is it going to be until one of these 16tonne lorries “saving time” hits parked cars or even a cyclist/predestrian? As both times they haven’t been hanging around.
My reasons for bringing this matter to the forum is this matter is escalating as the latest vehicle using this route was a Banks Brewery wagon!
Could we not make Woodvale/Thatcham Ave a 7.5tonne weight limit? Because what could be next, a 40ft Artic ploughing it’s way down through Thatcham Ave?
So Barry could it be looked into that we have a weight limit put on these roads without the “except for deliveries” notice?
Just a straight 7.5 tonnes would do the trick?
