HGV management and signing
Moving freight efficiently and safely to and from local ports and industrial areas is important for the economy and environment of North Lincolnshire.
To reduce the number of heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) travelling along residential and other unsuitable roads, freight routes have been created in North Lincolnshire.
Many roads in North Lincolnshire are not suitable for HGVs because of restrictions on weight, height or width.
Any load over 40 tonnes is classed as abnormal and the haulier must inform the police and receive permission to move it on the roads.
Roads unsuitable for HGVs are signed with the restrictions. These need the backing of a traffic regulation order (TRO) before they can be enforced. The council will put restrictions on roads that they consider to be unsuitable for HGVs.
