LORRIES could soon be banned from cutting through four areas of Kirklees.
The council plans to stop vehicles weighing more than 7.5 tonnes from using quiet areas as a short cut to two new quarry developments on the B6118 Liley Lane at Kirkheaton.
The restrictions will apply in four zones - Lepton, Thornhill, Kirkheaton and Hopton.
Thirteen roads at Lepton, 118 roads around Thornhill, 47 roads near Hopton and 92 roads around Kirkheaton will be restricted.
Lorries will not be allowed to pass in and out of zones without stopping for deliveries or other business.
Liz Twitchett, the council's senior traffic engineer, said the aim of the restrictions was to combat increased lorry traffic caused by the Laneside Quarry and Temple Quarry on Liley Lane.
She added: "There are a lot of small villages throughout the area.
"We are trying to prevent lorries from running through them by making them stick to the main roads," she said.
Laneside Quarry will be used for landfill until 2016 and Temple will be quarried for sand and minerals, then used for landfill.
Lorries will be expected to get on to Liley Lane via the A642 or the A62.
The plans follow extensive public consultation about traffic, carried out in December and January.
Formal notices of the proposals have now been advertised.
People have until October 6 to object to the plans.
If there are no objections or they are resolved, the council will implement the scheme straightaway.
If objections cannot be resolved, the matter will be referred to Kirklees Counbcil's Cabinet for a decision.

Mirfield council offices, Lepton library, Kirkheaton library and Dewsbury Town Hall will also have the information.
