Preston – Heavy traffic petition to be launched

Photo taken in Preston on Monday by John Hockless

A PETITION IS to be launched in Preston at the weekend seeking solutions to the dangerous levels of traffic through the village.

A campaign has been running for some time to highlight the problems of heavy traffic, particularly HGV vehicles, that travel through the village.

A report in the Holderness Gazette last week (8th March 2012) said that its East Riding Council sources considered a ban on heavy lorries unlikely. Instead, it is understood that a new road-marking system to encourage drivers to keep away from the narrow pavements is being proposed.

HU12 Online hopes to bring you further details of the petition and the campaign in the next few days.
