Back to all reports

I witnessed the severe damage to a traffic light at the junction. A large articulated lorry (reg F1 KWE) swung out while taking the corner and knocked the traffic light. I took a photo of the lorry.

I spoke to an engineer this afternoon who was repairing part of the damage. The road is forbidden to vehicles over 7.5 ton but this appears to have been violated. My name is Richard Roberts

  • Thank you for your report and apologies for the delay in my response. The road you have referred to in Wantage is subject to a 7.5 tonne vehicle weight restriction like you have stated, however this restriction has an 'Except for Access' clause which permits a vehicle over the posted weight limit to enter the restricted area if it has a legitimate reason for example to deliver to a property within the restriction itself. I can therefore confirm that the vehicle weight restriction is correctly signed
