This road has. 7ton limit on as this area was built on mne shafts ffrom when it used to be a quarry area. I have reported this problem to first travel but have heard nothing back. Double decker buses which weigh over 10tons are using the road as a short cut to get to the depot. This is causing a number of problems. 1. The road does not support this weight and is NOT on any bus route 2. The road is too small to have buses trying to pass. We have a LOT of problems with built up traffic in this area causing so many arguments between drivers and adding a double decker bus to the mix is causing massive problems. 3. The noise pollution off these buses is massive it as a very In closed area and they drive these buses through her at 1am the noise is horrendous and it wakes me up it is that loud. I do. It understand why they are aloud to do this. Can this be stopped? It is dangerous more than anything knowing the history of the area and there are signs in place that are being ignored.
