- Gloucestershire Freight Gateway
Gloucestershire County Council has launched a new website which helps lorry companies to avoid low bridges, narrow lanes and weight restrictions, and plan where to stop.
The Freight Gateway is a new online service to help hauliers plan their lorry routes in and through the county. A lorry driver, or a logistics planner, can visit the website and enter the size of their vehicle by putting in its height, width and weight along with the journey start and finish points. A map will then be displayed which shows the best route to take. The suggested route will avoid any low bridges or narrow lanes, and any roads with a weight restriction which applies to that vehicle.
Residents can also use the new service to report to the council any lorries they see using an unsuitable route - just click on the 'Lorry Watch' tab at the top of the map.
