Butterworth avenue in opaheke has signs at the entrance and exit of the street that says heavy trucks cannot use this street. This is ignored as heavy trucks regularly speed down this avenue. I have seen them almost hit children crossing the road. They also have been causing damage to the road surface. The road is not designed for heavy vehicles and as such the trucks cause shock waves through the ground which affects the houses along this street. Is it possible to change the street layout to restrict physically the ability for these trucks to use butterworth avenue?

Today work started on changing the layout of Butterworth ave. The enterance and exit both look to be changing to restrict trucks. It also looks like they are putting in some judder bars which will be good.
Trucks still using this street. Are beginning to damage the new restrictive curbs. Have seen big trucks do 3 point turns into butterworth now blocking traffic on great south. Really need policing somehow. They do nothing but damage our residential street. Not designed for such heavy trucks.
