Proposed HGVs ban driven forward

A BID to improve air quality in Henley by introducing a restriction on heavy goods vehicles has gained the support of town councillors.

The town and community committee, which met last Tuesday, has called for a “substantive survey” into the movements of lorries in the area.

This was in response to a request made by Justin Bowles, of St Mark’s Road, who is a member of environmental group Henley in Transition.

He told the committee: “Weight restriction traffic regulation orders are enacted across the county for environmental reasons and not just for structural damage.

“The government has established a strategic road network made up of trunk roads across the country. The purpose of the trunk roads is to carry heavy goods vehicles over long distances.
