The whole length of the lane from Preston on Stour to Admington is being destroyed by an unprecedented amount of traffic, including 'unsuitable' HGVs, all choosing to use the lane as a shortcut from the diversion caused by the roadworks on the Mickleton road Works ref: PC020CLIFFORDLANE Project ref: PC020SHIPSTONRD_RBTS I see there is a report about Wimpstone lane traffic - I've been there today and while it is bad, it is nothing like as bad as the Preston - Admington lane, which is narrower. Just one lorry fills the width of the lane. The photos posted here do not do justice to the damage. Along much of the lane, the grass verge has completely gone, at least a yard either side of the tarmac. With the edge of the tarmac now invisible, the road will be breaking up with lorries driving on the edge of the tarmac. I had the glass on one of my foglights broken over the weekend. On the Shipston road, there are two UNSUITABLE FOR HGVs but today, I followed a large articulated lorry which ignored the signs. I will send you dash cam footage of the lorry and the damage it caused when it met another lorry and both had to drive as far over as possible onto the grass verge to pass. I have seen three huge 4 axle skip/dumpers driving down our lane. All those were when I was on my bike so I don't have footage. There is no UNSUITABLE FOR HGVs sign at the Admington end of the lane. Please let me know how to send you the dash cam footage which shows the signs are being ignored wholesale and shows the true state of the road now. And we have another month of this. You MUST do something about it.
