Increasing numbers of HGVs using unsuitable country lane

There has been a gradual increase in the numbers of vehicles, especially HGVs using Reades Lane as a cut through from the A4074 and Horsepond Road to get to the B481 Peppard Road via Kennylands Road. The lorries are large and noisy and travel at unsuitable speeds given the lack of pavement for safe pedestrian travel, narrow sections with bends and the presence of the school in the eastern section. The road at the Gallowstree Common end is becoming increasingly damaged with patch repairs and puddle formation towards the sides of the road.
At the Gallowstree Common End residents are frequently woken by delivery lorries from a local builders merchant amongst others as the loads bounce up and down in the lorry trailers as they pass over the bumps.
Is there any way that a restriction could be placed on HGV movements along this road on the grounds of health and safety and disturbance to a residential area?
