Decision details

Irwell Vale Road, Aitken Street, Bowker Street and Milne Street, Edenfield - Proposed Changes to Weight Restrictions

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No


This report sets out a proposal to revoke structural weight limits of 7.5 tonne on two bridges in Irwell Vale and replace them with an 18 tonne environmental weight limit. The structural weight limits are no longer appropriate as the bridges have been strengthened. The 18 tonne weight limit is considered necessary to protect the private roads in Irwell Vale from unsuitable heavy vehicles but allow a reasonable level of access for deliveries to the area.


The proposals have been advertised in the local press and one objection has been received.



The Cabinet approved the recommendation(s) as set out in the report.


Date of decision: 17/01/2019

Effective from: 23/01/2019
