WEIGHT limits on two Herefordshire roads are set to be scrapped, paving the way for lorries to use them once again.

A 10-tonne weight limit has been in force on the C1001 at Buckton, near Leintwardine.

That has been in place due to the weak bridge on the road from the hamlet towards Adforton.


But because strengthening work has now taken place, Herefordshire Council is planning to revoke that weight limit.

The same is planned for the C1011 at Kinsham, on the border near Presteigne.

There has been a five-tonne weight limit there, also due to a weak bridge.

But, again, because of work to strengthen the bridge, on the road towards Shobdon, that weight limit is no longer "required nor justified" and can be revoked.


Herefordshire Council did say in a public notice that unsuitable for HGV signage will be put in place to "deal with traffic taking unsuitable routes, despite the strengthening of the bridges".

Changes will take effect from February 17, and objections can be made by emailing lewis@adltraffic.co.uk by midday on January 13.
