HGV monitoring on local roads
Dodington Parish Council have recently received this update from Cllr Claire Young regarding HGV monitoring.
Monitoring will be carried out in September as part of the investigation into a possible 7.5T environmental weight limit on the roads leading from the B4465 to Dodington Road.
The number and type of vehicles using the roads will be logged at a number of locations using wires across the roads. The monitoring counters also measure vehicle speeds for census purposes only and not enforcement. It will be done in September, after the peak holiday period, because this will give a better idea of how the roads are used typically. The data will help highways officials at South Gloucestershire Council make a decision about introducing a weight limit.
If a weight limit was introduced, heavy goods vehicles that need to access properties within the limit would still be able to use the roads.

Do you use the Dodington Road bridge near Chipping Sodbury School? Do you realise that it will be closed for a couple of weeks later this year?
At the Frome Vale Area Forum, Network Rail gave a brief update on their plans for increasing the height of the parapets on the railway bridge on Dodington Road, near Chipping Sodbury School.
The bridge will be closed to vehicles from 23 May to 5 June 2016 to enable them to safely carry out the work. This will followed by a series of Saturday night closures, on 28th May, 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th June and 2nd July. A pathway will be kept open for pedestrians and (dismounted) cyclists and horseriders.
