Chris Seeks Utilisation Statistics For Brocks Pine Lorry Park
Christopher Chope Conservative, Christchurch
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what data his Department holds on the number of lorries that used the lorry park at Brocks Pine off the A31 at St Leonards, Dorset, in each of the last 12 months for which information is available; and whether Highways England have been requested to close or relocate that facility.
Richard Holden Parliamentary Under-Secretary (Department for Transport)
The government does not regularly collect this information. As part of the National Survey of Lorry Parking, published in September 2022, the utilisation level for Brocks Pine, A31, Ringwood, Hampshire was at 50% (8 HGVs and a total capacity of 16). This is a one-off snapshot (one Thursday night in March 2022) taken from the overnight audits completed. No further information is held.
