Stoke Rd Knock Ln Road Closure Diversion
Northamptonshire Police Operation Snap
Residents have noted an increase in the volume and weight of the traffic this week along Stoke Road, through the village. May we ask you, friends and neighbours to take videos, if at all possible, and then post them on the Police website: https://snap.northants.police.uk/snap/ This helps to highlight the problem, rather than having just one email from the Blisworth Parish Council. The Police may be more inclined to act if they get multiple emails from residents. Please note that it is an offence to video another vehicle while actually driving. Alternatively, if you could take the registration number and the name of the company etc on the overweight vehicle and notify the Police, they will investigate further. Blisworth Parish Council have notified the Bridge and Highway Structures Team Leader to alert them to the fact that there is increased and increasing volume of traffic using Stoke Road and an increasing amount of traffic that contravenes the 3.5 T weight restriction. The Police have been made aware of this issue and KIER (Highways) agreed to also contact the Police so that they are made aware of the issues with this section of road and the need to enforce the weight restriction.
