A resident has been in contact with Buckinghamshire Council regarding the weight restriction on the Station Road bridge over the railway as there have been numerous 40 ton lorries driving into the village over the bridge en route to the Dandara site.
Heavy trucks are not supposed to take this route into the southern end of the village.
Apparently, Buckinghamshire Council is aware of the potential confusion around a Traffic Regulation Order and signage on Station Road in Haddenham. The order permits access off Thame Road towards Haddenham Village to vehicles 7.5 tonne or less. Heavy vehicles are not permitted to use this route.
According to the correspondent, this traffic restriction was originally introduced in 1977 and is similar to those at other locations in the area.
Having taken an alternative unrestricted route into the sothern end of Haddenham, vehicles in excess of 7.5 tonnes are able to exit the village up Station road to the Thame Road but they are not permitted to travel over the railway bridge in the opposite direction.
The railway bridge in Station Road is the responsibility of Network Rail who look after its maintenance and load capacities, advising Buckinghamshire Council and the Highway Authority as necessary.
