HC Deb 24 October 1986 vol 102 c1027W
Mr. Steel

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the linking of Forestry Commission roads with the public road system in respect of weight restrictions on the public roads.

Mr. Rifkind

Where weight restrictions on public roads are of a permanent nature, the Forestry Commission plans its network of forest roads to avoid the restricted roads wherever possible. If the restrictions are temporary, the maximum use is made of forest roads where these can provide reasonable alternative access, but the commission's operational efficiency can be affected if these restrictions are for long periods.
