Wortley Road Heavy Goods Vehicle Restrictions


The Council is proposing to restrict heavy goods vehicle traffic on a section of A629 Wortley Road and on residential streets in the surrounding areas.

The restrictions aim to reduce harmful nitrogen dioxide levels produced by diesel engines to legal levels for residents primarily living along the A629 Wortley Road but also neighbouring residential areas. It will also reduce the impact of road freight on these communities.

The Council has consulted on these restrictions in principle as part of the Clean Air Consultation in 2019. See here for this consultation and the results
