West Suffolk Council to consider councillor call for action on HGVs using Moreton Hall roads near residential areas
A councillor call for action to tackle HGVs using roads near Bury St Edmunds residential areas will be considered next week.
On Thursday, West Suffolk Council’s overview and scrutiny committee will discuss Cllr Trevor Beckwith’s call for action on the impact of the eastern relief road and A14 junction 45 on the Moreton Hall residential area
In the call for action Cllr Beckwith said since the opening of the eastern relief road – now called Rougham Tower Avenue – and improved A14 junction 45 in September 2017, HGV traffic in residential areas, including Orttewell Road, Bedingfeld Way and Skyliner Way, had increased to an ‘unacceptable level’.
He has suggested introducing a weight restriction in Orttewell Road to encourage usage of junction 45 rather than estate roads.
