A COUNCILLOR welcomed the news that 118 roads in his Thornhill ward are to benefit from vehicle weight restrictions.
But Tory Khizar Iqbal added that he was disappointed that Church Lane in Thornhill had not been included in the proposals.
Kirklees Council intends to limit road usage in much of Thornhill to 7.5 tonnes, in a bid to get lorries off unsuitable roads.
The move follows two new quarry developments on the B6118 Liley Lane at Kirkheaton, expected to cause problems in the Briestfield and Whitley areas.
Clr Iqbal said he would press the council to also have restrictions in Church Lane.
He said: "Church Lane is in a conservation area and there are a number of listed buildings which would benefit environmentally from weight restrictions being imposed.
"I would like to back the views of the Rev Lindsay Dew, of Thornhill Parish Church, and urge the council to include Church Lane in its proposals for weight restrictions in the area."
Clr Iqbal said heavy traffic in parts of Thornhill had been a problem since the Bon Marché development opened at Grange Moor.
"I have been involved with local people since then in trying to get weight restrictions implemented on roads in the area.
"Quite frankly, the roads in this area are not up to heavy traffic, and these restrictions will improve both safety and the local environment on these roads and in our villages," he said.
