Consultation over lorry ban in Earlsfield

Postby Community Editor » Mon Oct 08, 2018 10:58 am

Residents in nearly 40 streets in parts of Earlsfield and Wandsworth Common are being asked their views on proposals for a lorry ban.

Wandsworth Council’s highway engineers have drawn up plans that would see lorries weighing more than 7.5 tonnes barred from enteringquiet residential streets in and around Magdalen Road estate.

If approved the ban would prevent HGVs using streets bounded by Magdalen Road, Trinity Road, Burntwood Lane and Garratt Lane as a cut through.

WBC
why the ban is needed.
the traffic flow is so poor on the main routes because so many traffic lights and junctions have automated red lights and four way junctions automate to have all directions on a red with no one crossing.
Get rid of traffic lights and introduce roundabouts to increase traffic flow
Ensure more freight is taken on the rail system
include in any ban, privately hired buses and coaches over 7.5 tons
and reduce the number of basements being dug requiring grab trucks to hold up traffic in peak hours
