Chobham Road weight restriction
In June, RBWM imposed an 18 tonne weight limit on the B383 Chobham Road for the railway bridge in Sunningdale. Local Sunningdale residents have, however, expressed further concerns about increased traffic there, including heavy goods vehicles, and that construction traffic from the DERA development may routinely use the Chobham Road. They are seeking to obtain a further reduction to 7.5 tonnes and have now lodged a 1000+ signature petition in favour.
Your Committee will be closely monitoring this situation. Our concern would be to ensure that additional DERA traffic does not divert through Virginia Water. Some restrictions are already in place along Trumps Green Road with its two bridges and there is a hazardous junction at Chobham Lane/Kitsmead Lane, making this a very unsuitable route for heavy goods vehicles.
