New traffic-management plan for Hills’ sites

Traffic-management plan

Company introduces new HGV traffic-management plant for two sites near Calne in Wiltshire

THE Hills Group have introduced a new traffic-management plan in relation to their sites at Lower Compton and Sands Farm, near Calne, in Wiltshire.

Mike Hill, chief executive of The Hills Group, said: ‘We have been able to introduce this new traffic-management plan following the construction of a private internal road that links our two sites at Lower Compton and Sands Farm.

‘The internal link road is only for use by heavy and light goods vehicles over 7.5 tonnes that are associated with Hills’ business at either of the two sites. It is not open to members of the public.’

However, Hills have stressed that the new plan does not mean that all heavy goods vehicles will be removed from the A4 in Calne town centre and the A3102 (Silver Street).

Any heavy goods vehicles, including those from Hills that are not collecting from or delivering to either of the two sites, will still able to pass through Calne using these routes.

Mr Hill added that the traffic-management plan also does not apply to vehicles below 7.5 tonnes in weight, nor to Hills’ vehicles collecting from or delivering to homes and businesses in the Calne area and off the A4.

The company has put in place a reporting system for local residents who may wish to report vehicles they believe to be in contravention of the new plan.
