Fresh concern over North Weald Brexit lorry park

News / Mon 14th Dec 2020 at 02:49pm

FRESH concern has been expressed over the prospect of HGVs using roads in North Weald village to get to the HGV Brexit checkpoint on North Weald airfield.

Councillor Andy Tyler reported to last Monday’s parish council meeting how a juggernaut had got stuck in Wellington Road because of cars parked either side of the road.

He fears lorries could use narrow roads instead of the designated routes to get to the ‘inland border facility’, such as Church Lane that has a 7.5-tonne weight limit.

Mr Tyler told the meeting: “As the bad weather comes this is obviously a health and safety issue. 

“I think it really should be a number one concern for Epping Forest District Council (which owns the airfield) as to how they make the HMRC site work safely.

“I know they are not responsible for the routes but surely they should be putting in some kind of roadblock to stop that size of juggernaut getting through.”

"The Kent lorry park designed to relieve queues of up to 7,000 trucks taking goods across the Channel will not be ready for Brexit customs controls on 1 January, it has emerged." https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/dec/15/kent-lorry-park-to-miss-brexit-day-deadline But don't worry. I have every confidence that an army of 'leave' voters will rise up and will complete the Farage Garage, for free and on time. I'm sure that this lorry park will be the easiest lorry park ever completed. There are no plans for no lorry park because there will be a lorry park.
