The large vehicles which go down Rattlers road is just wrong, they cannot even keep in between the kerbs. Where there carec no kerbs as in on the way to Elveden, big ruts have been dug down the sides of the road which are potentially killers to cars and mortorcycles
For through traffic, at Mundford, traffic for Newmarket is directed towards the A11, from Fiveways, Swaffham traffic is directed to the A11. a slightly longer journey maybe but less reason to be stopped at traffic lights or railway crossings and potentially saving fuel?



With regard to Rattlers road would it not be possible to put in a width restriction so HGVs can't us it as a short cut?

i dont know if it would work Diane, some wag built a bridge over a road for the railway in Thetford, vans are still getting stuck under it where they just ignore the warning signs.
