Sheffield LGV ban dropped

  • 21 June 2013
  • By Ashleigh Wight

A LGV ban on a busy route in Sheffield has been dropped to alleviate some of the pressure on surrounding roads.

Councillors voted to drop the Bocking Lane lorry ban at a meeting on Tuesday (18 June), after concerns for safety on surrounding roads were raised.

Previously, goods vehicles over 7.5-tonnes were banned from using the route since May 2011.

A spokesman for Sheffield City Council said: “The aim is to alleviate some of the pressure during the daytime to take some of the pressure off of the other roads. It’s a difficult part of the city because routes are relatively narrow.”

In December, councillors relaxed the restriction so it was only effective between 11pm and 7am.
