Hgvs try and squeeze down first turn road when there is little to no access and constantly block the road, there is also a much easier route than going down first turn, there should be a vehicle limit size for this area to state what vehicles can pass. there is cctv footage that shows the problem.

  • The road markings (or rather the lack of them) over the bridge at First Turn are confusing and could potentially lead to a head on accident. The majority of this road has a missing central marking, so the lack of central marking over the narrow bridge (as might be normal for a road that narrows) gives no indication that the road narrows and there appears to be no other obvious signage. As a result there have been several close calls with vehicles coming towards each other where one mat not realise the road narrows until already on the bridge.
