Petition regarding weight of lorries along the A30 : this is now an e-petition on the RBWM website.  Please follow the links

http://petitions.rbwm.gov.uk/lorryweights/

Background:
Sunningdale residents and road users are noticing a marked      increase in traffic, particularly heavy goods vehicles,   travelling along the Chobham Road (B383). There is also the danger that construction traffic from the DERA development at  Longcross will routinely use the Chobham Road.

The Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead (RBWM) only has a few  options for placing restrictions on a ‘B’ road but it freely      acknowledges that this road, with its shops, houses and street    parking, is completely inappropriate for use by heavy lorries.

In June, RBWM imposed an 18 tonne weight limit but it is  difficult to tell which lorries are 18 tonne or heavier. The  reduction to 7.5 tonnes would make it much clearer if a heavy lorry uses the road.

There is also a danger posed by 18 tonne lorries on the bridge.      Not only are they forced to cross the central white lines which is illegal but on-coming traffic can’t be seen due to the bend on the bridge.  The only answer is to restrict the size/weight of vehicles allowed on the road.
