Early morning lorries plan for Asda store deliveries

more Kings Heath local news

Articulated lorries could be using Poplar Road from as early as 6am as part of a plan being put forward by the Kings Heath Asda store.

The large delivery trucks have to negotiate the narrow side street in order to reverse into the Asda loading bay. At the moment they are only allowed to do this after 7.30am Monday to Saturday and after 8.00am on Sundays and bank holidays.

Restrictions were put in place when the store was operated by Safeway in August 2000. Measures included banning the use of reversing alarms and other noisy activities so as not to disturb local residents more than necessary.

Asda's plan for earlier and later deliveries comes with a long list of rules for its lorry drivers and staff working in the loading bay.

The company has applied for planning permission for a six month trial period. Before making up its mind, the city council has opened the issue for local comment until 12 May.

Asda's staff guidelines include no shouting or whistling, no slamming doors and care when moving metal cages and trolleys. The company is also committing to keep doors, gates and shutters well oiled and maintained so they do not create excessive noise.
