Main Street Weight Restriction

Main Street, Houghton has a 7.5t weight restriction although the Parish Council has received reports of such vehicles using this road. HGVs can enter a weight restricted zone for loading, unloading and access which includes legitimately entering a zone to make a delivery. It is, however, an offence for a HGV to be driven through a weight restricted zone without stopping for these purposes. The Police can enforce weight restrictions and if details of the vehicles including company name, vehicle registration and times the vehicles are on the road can be given to the Police they will be able to look into any contravention further.
