Darren shares concern about trucks using Iron Bridge route and minor roads

Darren Jones, MP for Bristol North West, has commented on the on-going problems of lorries and trucks getting stuck under/damaging the iron bridge in Shirehampton (see picture of incident on 25 10 18) and causing traffic chaos whilst they find their way back to the main roads.

Darren said:

“We have got to stop industrial trucks from taking short cuts to Avonmouth via Kingsweston Lane through Kingsweston and Lawrence Weston. They need to use the Portway and the motorway quality roads between Shirehampton and Avonmouth villages to get into and out of our industrial area. Not only do they not fit, but it significantly increases the risk of accidents.

I’ve written to our Mayor to ask what we can do to make this change happen”.
