LORRIES will be temporarily banned from their signposted access to a Herefordshire town's industrial estate.

Bromyard had previously faced issues with lorries getting stuck through High Street and Broad Street in the town centre, with the large vehicles eventually banned.

A 7.5-tonne weight limit, except for access, was put on various roads in the town, including Old Road, New Road and through the town centre.


It means any lorries wanting to access Station Industrial Estate should enter from the Tenbury road, Church Street from the A44 or the Stourport road.

But now Herefordshire Council has said lorries will temporarily be banned from Church Street, meaning issues for drivers coming from Hereford, Worcester or Leominster.

The council said in a public notice that lorries would be banned from using the B4203 Church Street outside the Old Grammar School.

It said the restriction was needed due to insufficient road width for lorries during a crossing for utility connection works.

The restriction would come into force on February 18 for three days and it said there was no alternative route.
