7.5 tonne vehicle weight restrictions in Central Bedfordshire

E-mail Print PDF

Central Bedfordshire Council is planning to introduce 7.5 tonne vehicle weight restrictions in three zones in Central Bedfordshire.

By introducing a series of strategically located 7.5 tonne weight limits in three zones, Central Bedfordshire Highways aims to improve life for residents in towns and villages currently experiencing high volumes of HGV through-traffic.

These HGVs will be rerouted to the most appropriate roads, two of these being the A5-M1 Link and Woodside Link roads, currently under construction.

Deliveries and services (such as road sweeping, bin emptying) within the three zones will be unaffected.

Some local roads will then be reclassified following the detrunking of the A5 through Dunstable to support the HGV routing strategy: for example, the A5 through Dunstable will become the A5183, the A5120 will become the B5120.

This will mean more local control over the A5 in Dunstable and its use will no longer be part of the strategic national road network run by Highways England.
