Unsuitable for HGV sign missing

Reported via desktop in the Road signage category anonymously at 10:31, Monday 24 April 2023

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4478858.

Furber Road in St. George is being used as a cut through from Bryant's Hill up to Kingsway.

HGVs frequently use this road as a cut through instead of driving 300 metres up to the traffic lights on the junction of Bryant's Hill and turning right on to the Kingsway.

As a result, many HGVs have become stuck between parked cars and require residents to come out and move their vehicles.

This is not sustainable as not all residents are at home when these HGVs become stuck and this can cause significant traffic backlogs and has caused damage to parked vehicles.

A "Not suitable for HGV" sign needs to be placed at the bottom of Furber Road (on the junction of Bryant's Hill) to prevent HGVs from using this is a cut through.

  • Second time this has happened in the last two weeks that I've personally witnessed. A resident had to come out of their house to help the driver get through, which took about 5 minutes in total.

    No matter which way (left or right) they turn out of Furber Road, they end up straight back on the Kingsway road.

    Please do something about this as it will no doubt cause constant damage to our parked vehicles.
