This request is for Current Traffic Road Orders in the Burlescombe, Tiverton area. Specifically, weight restrictions on the local roads.
Using google maps as many of our roads are un-named, I would request the following:
Beginning at the A38 heading into Burlescombe, passing XYZ tools and St Marys Church joining onto Station road all the way through until you reach Redland. From Redland taking a right turn along past Carian Motors, heading past Longwood Lane, passing Whipcott Water following a right turn at the end leading up to taking another right turn, which will follow on past Greenham Business Park and re-join the A38.
As the route is followed information on all-inclusive roads are required.
The enquiry was concerning routes designated for Westleigh Quarry (Aggregate Industries) hgv’s within the Burlescombe area
We can confirm that the routing of lorries going to and from Westleigh Quarry is subject of a legal agreement between the Aggregate Industries and Devon County Council. In the agreement the quarry company are required to implement a traffic scheme whereby the routing of all lorry traffic entering Westleigh Quarry from the M5/A38 roads shall be via Whiteball and Whipcott and all lorry traffic leaving the site shall be via Burlescombe village. The quarry company is required to use its reasonable endeavours to ensure compliance with the scheme in relation to vehicles coming to or leaving the site
With respect to traffic road orders, we can confirm that in the area of Burlescombe and with reference to the height, length, width and weight restrictions there are 3 current restrictions in place:
|2325||Active||The County of Devon (Pugham Mill Lane Bridge, Burlescombe) (Weight Restriction) Order 1992||10/03/1992||Mid Devon||Burlescombe CP|
