New signage has been installed in Ockley to reduce the possibility of lorries trying to reach the Ewhurst Brick and Tile Works via Forest Green and will be installed on the A29 to reduce the possibility of lorries using Ruckmans Lane in Okewood Hill.  Wienerberger have also contacted the two main sat nav companies asking them to remove the Forest Green to Walliswood Road and Ruckmans Lane from their suggested routes for lorries.

CCTV has now also been installed at the factory gate which allows office staff to see which direction lorries are approaching the site from; if from the wrong direction site managers address the issue with the driver on the spot. 

The factory continues to receive a few complaints predominantly about lorries failing to comply with the voluntary one-way system initiated to minimise the possibility of two vehicles meeting each other as they travel in opposite directions and staff at Wienerberger are keen to hear of any complaints or concerns that members of the public have. If you provide times, dates and registration numbers (if applicable) as quickly as possible in an email to steve.dawe@wienerberger.com it could be possible to address the issue with the driver as he arrives at the factory gate.
