To Stop Over 85,000 Additional Trucks Using The City's Highways

We the undersigned petition the council to Not allow over 85,000 earth moving trucks along the whole of the City's highways infrastructure and use other means, such as barges along the river Thames or the rail network.

The council is proposing to allow 120 earth moving trucks of 40/50 tonnes per day on our highway infrastructure, from the far west of the City's boundary to the far east, over a two-and-a-half-year period. This equals over 85,000 truck movements, between the hours of 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday and between 8am and 1pm on a Saturday. No impact assessment has been carried out in terms of diesel exhaust fumes and the environmental impact around our children's schools, no impact assessment has been carried out on the vibration to the foundations of the residential homes throughout this route, no property surveying is proposed to check for damage and subsidence to any residential homes along the route. The proposed route is the A127, Prince Avenue, Priory Crescent, Eastern Avenue, Royal Artillery Way, Thorpe Hall Avenue (north and south of the railway), Thorpe Esplanade and Shoebury Common Road into Ness Road.
