An environmental weight limit will not be imposed on A or B classified roads, but residents may request a weight restriction for their road and this will be fully assessed in accordance with the council approved method.

The assessment process considers:

  • The number of HGV's actually using the road
  • The 5 year personal injury accident statistics
  • The physical characteristics of the road
  • Frontage usage of the road
  • Pedestrian usage

To report abuse of any imposed weight restrictions please contact West Midlands Police
