Earthline and other large earth moving vehicles using A4185

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 09:14, Friday 14 February 2020

The amount of earth moving vehicles, especially Earthline, using the A4185 is crazy. They use the road as a race track with no care for the speed they are doing. It's only a matter of time before a really bad accident happens. Put in measures to stop this road being used as a rat run and slow the road down or make large lorries use the A417/Hagbourne hill to get to Harwell Campus and the A34.

  • Same can be said for A417 Wantage Road. I have made many calls directly to the offending companies advising them. It has only had a limited effect. Something needs to be done.
