Weight restrictions to be put in place

Weight restrictions will be put on several roads through Kimberley, Watnall and Nuthall.

In Watnall, vehicles heavier than 7.5 tonnes will no longer be able to travel down Trough Road, Stannier Way, Newdigate Road and Corbiere Avenue.

In Kimberley, the same restriction will apply to Victoria Street, Main Street, Maws Lane, Eastwood Road.

And in Nuthall, heavy vehicles will be unable to use Larkfield Road and Philip Avenue.

Kimberley councillor Richard Robinson has been lobbying Nottinghamshire County Council for several months to get the restrictions put in place.
