Jon Cruddas MP has welcomed the introduction from 11 May of a Heavy Goods Vehicle ban on lorries over 7.5-ton weight in Rainham Village. This will also have a positive impact on HGV traffic passing through Wennington Village.

The ban will be enforced by the introduction of a CCTV camera and is designed to stop the lorries travelling through Rainham village, Upminster Road South and Wennington Road. Lorries that are not exempt from the ban will be subject to Penalty Charge Notices if they drive through the area.

 

Long suffering residents of Wennington Village in Rainham have responded overwhelmingly in favour of measures to control HGVs plaguing their lives. Jon Cruddas MP issued a survey to all residents of the village in response to local people contacting him about the problems they face with lorry traffic cutting through the village. Issues raised with the MP included nuisance noise, vibrations which can be felt in properties, and damage to the road surfacing.
