Bypass Campaign Contacting Coach Companies

Kathryn Middleton, resident and campaigner for a Flockton Bypass, is continuing to contact companies who flout the vehicle access rules from the Grange Moor end of the village. The latest TRO (Traffic Regulation Order) in the form of the weight restriction sign for HGVs, is now enforcible by Police and only specific HGVs, such as emergency vehicles, service buses, and local farm vehicles, are permitted to enter the village from that direction.

Please could you tell your drivers to follow the diversion signs instead of travelling illegally through Flockton village on the A637 from Grange Moor roundabout. A new Transport Regulation Order from Kirklees Council has stopped all coaches over 7.5T from 12/4/19. The road is too narrow and is a serious accident waiting to happen. Thank you.
