The lorry route network leaflet (PDF, 805KB) sets out the network of designated lorry routes within the county.
Lorries parking in laybys and on county roads overnight can cause disturbance to residents, but the current level of overnight lorry parking facilities in Suffolk does not provide all drivers with a parking space off the highway.
To tell us about a lorry or haulier causing a problem on the highway network in Suffolk, please complete the HGV Incident Report Form.
If there is a problem caused by a lorry or haulier using a trunk road (PDF, 89KB) please contact the Highways Agency Information Line.
The Traffic Commissioner for the East of England issues HGV operator licences. He consults us on each application for an operators licence in Suffolk, and we are allowed to comment on the suitability of the access to the highway, turning circle within the site for the types of vehicles which will operate from the site and the capacity of the site for the number of vehicles that are proposed on the licence application. To get a full list of the Applications and Decisions for the Eastern Region, please go to the VOSA website.
