Sat nav error at bottom of "Bog Lane" Mochdre

Sent to Powys Council 2 minutes later

This narrow country lane is being used by HGV vehicles coming off the A489 despite a notice saying it is "Unsuitable for HGV" .Vehicles have dropped into ditch and been forced to pay for HGV recovery at a cost of thousands of pounds. I have spoken to drivers who are trying to get to an industrial estae and they are ALL following their Sat Nav. A Satnav error sign is needed. This has been happening for years and got worse since the opening of the new Newtown bypass. The lane is know locally as the "Bog Lane"

  • Powys County Council said that it had no authority to erect a "Satnav error" sign. Only the Welsh Government could authorise such a sign.
