Council to spend £30k on stopping lorries drive through three streets
Enfield Council is set to spend £30,000 on preventing lorries travel down three residential roads.
The Hilly Fields scheme will see width restrictions in Browning Road, Morley Hill and Kilvinton Drive.
According to the council, the changes will prevent lorry drivers from being able to take short cuts when travelling between busy A roads - Clay Hill and Lavender Road.
Enfield Council’s cabinet member for environment, Councillor Chris Bond, said: “Residents are understandably unhappy seeing massive lorries driving up and down narrow residential roads all day near young families and causing excessive noise and vibration.
“We’ve listened to residents’ concerns and moved swiftly to address those concerns.
"This project is all about making sure large vehicles keep to appropriate roads rather than ducking down small side streets for the sake of saving a few minutes off of journey times.”
Formal plans are expected to be decided in the Autumn.
