I believe he rationale behind it is that Earlsfield Road and Burntwood Lane are already wide roads and bus routes - therefore speed bumps are either much smaller or non-existent (not that lorries worry about speed bumps - especially lorries with empty skips who seem to bang over them at full speed at 3 o'clock in the morning!) - so I suppose the ban is trying to "encourage" lorries to use these two cross-routes instead of Magdalen?the parsley song wrote: ↑Sat Apr 13, 2019 2:25 pmThis is ridiculous if true. Magdalen Road is a wide road that was designed to carry some heavy local traffic. If you don't like that, don't live on it. It's just going to push traffic onto the smaller Earlsfield roads until residents on those roads get their own ban and then those trucks won't be able to go down any road.
Then one of the residents on Magdalen will want to get building work done on their house and they'll complain that they aren't allowed to have a lorry deliver supplies.
Doesn't sound like anyone has thought this through.
