Survey of heavy goods vehicles in Wem

A detailed survey of heavy goods vehicle (HGV) movements has been undertaken in Wem and its hinterland to respond to local concerns about the presence of HGVs in Wem town centre, and requests for an environmental weight restriction to limit the number of HGVs travelling through Wem. 

A briefing note has been produced to provide an overview of the key results of the HGV surveys, and you can also read the full technical report.

We've drawn up a map illustrating the locations of the survey sites (appendix B of the briefing note).
