The London Lorry Control Drivers Guide is the essential map for any Operator and Driver to be compliant to the London Lorry Scheme. Updated in January 2010, the traffic management order that governs the London Lorry Control Scheme has seen many changes. These updates affect the Excluded Route Network (ERN) at various points across the network and will be properly enforced from January 2011.
The new restrictions limit the movement of vehicles over 18 tonnes at nights and weekends. Trucks are allowed to drive freely on the Excluded Road Network (ERN), but require a permit to use restricted roads. Failure to have a permit or breaching permit conditions can cost haulage companies £500 and individual drivers £100.
The London Lorry Control Driver's Guide is the 2nd Edition to the London Lorry Guide and has been published with latest revisions to the ERN scheme.
It also maps out all the width, bridge height and weight restrictions on the main roads within the M25 and the top 10 bridge strikes in London.
The A4 sized atlas includes:
• Main road network within M25
• Low Emission Zone (LEZ)
• Congestion Charge Zone (CCZ)
