CATG Action / Recommendation

Issue

We live on Quarry Hill Box and are concerned about the traffic and roadside damage to the area. Quarry Hill is a narrow road and only suitable for one way traffic. However the amount of traffic two way has increased substantially over the years presumably due to increased housing in Corsham the MOD offices and the fact that the road now seems to be recognized on Satnav. Of particular concern are the large lorries that now use the route and the speed of many of the vehicles. In addition more cars used by walkers in the woods now park on the roadside and edge of the woods resulting in damage to the countryside including increased litter plus difficulty for vehicles using the road. The matter will also get worse once the new housing is all build in RudloecorshamWe are also concerned because our house sides onto the road at a very narrow point and our house and garden walls have been damaged by vehicles. It is only a matter of time before very serious damage is done to our property.Please can you advise how we can request restrictions on traffic using this road.
