With roadworks taking place on the oxford road which commence around 5pm a large amount of the lorries servicing the roadworks are using Springfield avenue and surrounding roads as a rat run. So 10 to 20 ton trucks up and down the road until midnight. Please can you stop this practice and enforce this decision. CDC have already announced a wright limit on this stretch of road which is being introduced. Please can they have their own contractors abide by it!
