Howard Tenens agree to lorry route to by-pass Aveley

THURROCK Council has come to a legal agreement with Howard Tenens in South Ockendon restricting the routes lorries can take to the site.

It restricts HGV drivers to using the A13 Wennington, Sandy Lane, Aveley by-pass to the site and vice versa.

Lorries should not drive through Aveley village, North Road, South Road, and Daiglen Drive, South Ockendon, or Pilgrims Lane. Stifford.

The agreement states if drivers contravene the planned route twice in any four month period they will be banned from the site.

Howard Tenens will monitor traffic movements at their site access – all HGVs should only turn left out of the site or right into the site. They will also keep a log of any complaints they receive.

Cllr Andy Smith, Thurrock Council’s portfolio holder for transport, said: “There have been many concerns about heavy lorries travelling along inappropriate streets and roads to get to the Howard Tenens site off Stifford Road – especially through Aveley village.

“This agreement should ensure lorries stay away from busy and built-up areas, providing drivers with a sensible route and giving residents some confidence that we have listened to their concerns and acted on it.”People can report vehicles that contravene the routing agreement to but will have to provide the location, date, time and vehicle registration so action can be taken.
