Wilford Lane Petition
Members of local action groups have been making their concerns known regarding the increasing traffic on Wilford Road in Nottingham. A petition to ban HGVs from Wilford Lane has now been started. HGVs obviously only make up a small percentage of the traffic on our roads, the biggest number and most contributing to traffic volumes and pollution are cars. However HGVs have always been seen by much of the public as the bad guy, even though they are driven by professional drivers who undertake regular continuous training in this highly legislated area. This being one of the main reasons for a high driver shortage in the UK and EU.
As major roadworks start on the A52 islands at Nottingham Knight and Wheatcroft next year their will inevitably be more traffic on other roads trying to avoid the delays to be expected with such works.
