The temporary traffic lights system has worked really well and draws attention to the narowness of the bridge. Can we not have a more permanent arrangement in place following repairs?

there needs to be a width restriction to stop that damage happening again, many a time I have been behind a wagon larger than 7.5t going down that lane, it just brings all traffic to a stop with many vehicles having to reverse back to let the wagon through.

There is already a weight restriction for vehicles over 7.5T but obviously, the drivers ignore the signage. What makes you think they would not overlook width restriction signage as well?

Yes, Jane Oakes, my husband & I said the same. Keep the traffic lights for good- if they’re motion-sensitive to vehicles waiting, it’s not a massive inconvenience at all. And certainly better than a scrape!!!

There is a width restrictor , which appears to work ,on the back way into Broadheath, on the bridge by the Bay Malton pub. It’s scarily narrow in a car , let alone a truck
