Stow Traffic Action Committee (STAC) started this petition to Gloucestershire county council

Stow-on-the-Wold is a beautiful and historic Cotswold town - its future is under threat from the effects of Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs).*

·      Noise and pollution

·      Threats to pedestrian safety and residents’ health

·      Damage to the historic buildings and road

The situation will be worsened due to Oxfordshire CC’s decision to impose a 7.5 tonne weight limit on the bridge over the river in Burford.

Quoting from Generalized Fourth Power Law    &   https://bettertransport.org.uk

*“A six-axle, 44-tonne truck is over 138,000 times more damaging than a typical small, 1 tonne car (such as a Ford Fiesta) with two axles.”

We, the undersigned, demand that Gloucestershire C.C. and the Gloucestershire Constabulary implement a Traffic Regulation Order banning access to Sheep Street (A 436), Stow-on-the-Wold by HGVs over 7.5 tonnes.
