Residents call for lorries to stop squeezing down their street
People living on a steep street in Swindon have relaunched a campaign to stop lorries squeezing through their road. Prospect Hill residents are calling for measures to stop lorries hitting their cars as they drive up the hill. There are also concerns that emergency vehicles would struggle to drive along the road. Parking is banned at the bottom of the hill in Swindon, which deceives drivers into believing that the narrow road is wider than it is. When they round the curve of the road there are often cars parked on both sides and many lorries either get stuck or hit the parked cars.
