Consultation: Lewes Road B2111 – Proposed Weight limit restriction

Published: 25 May 2021

CONSULTATION PERIOD: 25th May to 30th June 2021.
We are consulting on the implementation of a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) that would enforce a 7.5 tonne vehicle weight limit along Lewes Road (B2111) between High Street and Gravelye Lane (in both direction) and invite your comments on this. It may be that these proposals will not directly affect you, but your comments are still invited to help inform the consultation.
The proposals aim to reduce the number of HGVs travelling through Lindfield, reducing the levels of both sound and air pollution as well as reducing congestion at the junction of Lewes Road and High Street. This will aid in reducing the environmental impact of the area adhering to the aims of the West Sussex Transport Strategy.
The proposals:
To introduce a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) that would enforce a 7.5 tonne vehicle weight limit along Lewes Road (B2111) between High Street and Gravelye Lane. The restriction would prohibit vehicles greater than 7.5T from using the route, except for local access.
The initial consultation will run from 25th May until 30th June 2021.
