Operation no passes

Existing roads at Otterburn were too narrow to accept passing concrete lorries and the Northumberland National Park Authority prohibited vehicles crossing over the countryside. The only solution was to enforce a strict traffic regime, with each vehicle tagged on entry to Otterburn and given a route to its destination. This prevented vehicles meeting head on and kept drivers from getting lost.
