Lorries, Vans and Bikes: specialist driving, loading/unloading and parking maps

PIE produces quality maps that are tailored to the unique needs of specific driving communities.

We publish a Transport Manager's Wall Map and a London Lorry Guide, an A4 driver's atlas, in association with London Councils, the Road Haulage Association and Mercedes-Benz. he London Lorry Guide has been published on behalf of London Councils to help the haulage industry navigate London within the London-wide night time and weekend lorry control scheme. The maps show all the width, bridge height and weight restrictions on the main roads within the M25, and show the latest revisions to the London-wide night and weekend Lorry Control Scheme.

We also publish the London Van Guide, available for pre-order now. This is a large-scale street atlas of London showing loading bans and restrictions, council suspensions and dispensations, the extended congestion charging area and parking ticket hot spots.

London Lorry Control scheme maps

Restrictions are in place to protect the ageing roads and bridges and to improve the environment in which Londoners live. The restrictions limit the movement of vehicles over 18 tonnes at nights and weekends. Trucks are allowed to drive freely on the Excluded Road Network (ERN), but require a permit to use restricted roads. Failure to have a permit or breaching permit conditions can cost haulage companies £500 and individual drivers £100.
PIE has worked with London Councils to develop maps for truck drivers, transport managers and logistic managers.

The London Lorry Guide has been published on behalf of London Councils to help the haulage industry navigate around the London Lorry Control Scheme.

The atlas uses a Collins map and includes the latest revisions to the scheme. It also maps out all the width, bridge height and weight restrictions on the main roads within the M25 and the top 10 bridge strikes in London.

• Main road network within M25
• Central London street mapping and index
• Postcode map of Greater London

Additional features include:
