The timber extraction is due to begin on Monday 10th September 2018. The aim is for 3 lorries to come into the village, be loaded and leave again between 6am and 8am.
This will be repeated between 1pm and 3pm.
Lorries will have 2 convoy vehicles to go ahead and stop any traffic, make sure there are no walkers, pedestrians, cyclist etc.
There will be no lorries queueing to come into the village, they will be met and be accompanied by the convoy vehicles as soon as they come into the village from the A69.
Lorries will travel at 10mph along the whole route through the village with the convoy vehicles in front.
There will be signage and cones along the route warning road users that this is happening, and ensuring that the lorries do not mount the pavement or grass verges.
After the first week, if the time slots are working Ok for the village NCC will produce signs indicating the times on them. There will be another meeting with NCCafter the first week to feed back any issues.
The work is to be completed by the middle of October.
