HGVs face ban from bridge
Published 06/05/14



AN official request has been made to introduce a restriction on heavy goods vehicles using Henley Bridge.

The town council has written to Oxfordshire County Council asking for the order, saying it would help reduce air pollution.

Town clerk Mike Kennedy said: “The passage of HGVs through Henley leads to a clear reduction in the quality of life for residents.

“Henley Town Council therefore requests on grounds of congestion, danger to pedestrians, noise, air quality and damage to buildings from vibration — each of which is sufficient reason as specified in the Road Traffic Act 1984 — the introduction of a weight restriction traffic regulation order in Henley.”

Henley in Transition, an environmental group, had suggested applying for the order and town councillors agreed.


Meanwhile, the council has asked the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to reinstate a traffic sign directing HGVs away from Henley.

The sign, which encourages lorry drivers to use the Marlow bypass, used to be at the roundabout on the A404 at Burchetts Green.

The request was made at the suggestion of Councillor Will Hamilton who said that the sign had gone missing.
