In our consultation response, we claimed that the Council plans act against road safety, are unjust, and fail to address the underlying shortage of essential facilities for lorry drivers.

The restrictions were originally put in place to deal with potential problems around the end of the Brexit transition period. However, this is now over, as evidenced by the recent removal of Operation Brock infrastructure..
