Consultation on HGV movement strategy for Lancaster

With the opening of the M6 link road later this year, Lancashire County Council are looking at measures to “ensure that the benefits of the new link road are felt across the wider Lancaster area”. In this regard, they are consulting on the management of HGVs to make the most effective use of the link road – mainly by imposing a weight limit of 7.5 tonnes on non-motorway/non-bypass main roads. At first glance this looks promising, and Dynamo will be responding in due course.

Consultation closes on Monday 12 September
