Further advice and thanks to HTA Members received from CMPG re Commonwealth Games AIL Movements

19 Jul 2022 09:45 | Anonymous

The HTA have received the following communication from CMPG (Central Motorway Police Group)

"Thank you for circulating to your members and contacts, we have received a number of enquires since which have all been positive in their nature and have shown a willingness to support us with our request for which we are very grateful.

I thought I’d share with you a copy of an eMail I have been sending in reply to those enquiries which you may find useful to share too, particularly as avoidance of those areas would likely be of benefit to drivers and companies in terms of congestion and journey times.

Best wishes



"Firstly, thank you for taking the time to read the letter from Superintendent Mason and thinking about alternative routes during the Commonwealth Games, it’s very much appreciated.

I have pasted in a link below which is an interactive map of the routes that will be used during the games and these are the roads that we are asking abnormal load hauliers to avoid during the period. You may also actually find it beneficial yourselves to avoid these routes as we expect them to be even more congested than they are normally and this may have a negative impact on your journey times.

Rather than me advise alternative routes for your company, I’m hoping that by providing you with this specific information, it will assist you with your alternative planning.
