Traffic in breach of signposted weight restrictions

Reported in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 16:19, Monday 1 June 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

There are travel restrictions on Mill Street which state no vehicle heavier than 7.5 Tonne may travel along Mill Street unless it's for access.

There are clear violations of this happening on a daily basis and this is serious for two reasons:

1) The road is extremely loud as a consequence of large HGVs travelling through the town.

2) This vehicles are causing excessive damage to the road, which is rarely repaired

3) Causes serious shaking of local houses directly adjacent to the road.

I am in the process of organising group litigation for damages against our properties along Mill St as well as the excessive noise both during the day and night.
