Heavy lorry action plan

A PROJECT has been launched to stop heavy lorries using roads through Ravenshead as a short cut between the A60 and A614.

Nottinghamshire County Council and Ravenshead Parish Council are working together to create a Community Lorry Watch scheme in the village, which has an 18-tonne weight restriction on most of its residential roads.

Residents will record the details of any vehicles which they believe are over the weight limit and Trading Standards officers will then investigate.
