Truck road ‘no-go’ for drivers
SOUTH West roads are back at the top of the hazardous and expensive headaches list for truck drivers, with potholed surfaces and overhanging limbs forcing operators away from roads specifically designated for heavy transport.
LOCALS and truck drivers say the Woolsthorpe/Heywood Road - a major livestock, dairy and log truck route that is gazetted for b-double and road train use – is nowhere near up to standard with a long list of trouble spots, including low hanging limbs, rough surfaces, single carriage ways, numerous potholes and a history of serious accidents.
