Consultation: Lewes Road B2111 – Proposed Weight limit restriction

Proposed 7.5T Weight Restriction at the junction of the Lewes Road with Lindfield High Street – further consultation period Thursday 12th May 2022 to Friday 10th June 2022

The consultation (Lewes road TRO Consultation Report – Lindfield Parish Council) undertaken last year by the Project Centre on behalf of Lindfield Parish Council continued to show strong support for the proposed Traffic Restriction Order. Following feedback from West Sussex Highways, this consultation is now being updated and will shortly be advertised in the Mid Sussex Times.

If you have already responded to the original consultation, there is no need to respond again unless you wish to do so. Please submit your views to lindfieldtro@projectcentre.co.uk or to Lindfield Parish Council, The Clock Tower House, Lindfield Enterprise Park, Lewes Road, Lindfield RH16 2LH. For further information please call 01273 056149.

We are consulting on the implementation of a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) that would enforce a 7.5 tonne vehicle weight limit along Lewes Road (B2111) between High Street and Gravelye Lane (in both direction) and invite your comments on this. It may be that these proposals will not directly affect you, but your comments are still invited to help inform the consultation.

The proposals aim to reduce the number of HGVs travelling through Lindfield, reducing the levels of both sound and air pollution as well as reducing congestion at the junction of Lewes Road and High Street. This will aid in reducing the environmental impact of the area adhering to the aims of the West Sussex Transport Strategy.

The proposals:

To introduce a Traffic Regulation Order (TRO) that would enforce a 7.5 tonne vehicle weight limit along Lewes Road (B2111) between High Street and Gravelye Lane. The restriction would prohibit vehicles greater than 7.5T from using the route, except for local access.
