Um, why? if the bypass was there it wouldn't have had to come through the town.

I doubt it, which would you choose, a road where you can drive at a constant 50mph or a winding road where 30mph would be a luxury?

not necessarily, it would be the route which offered the most economic value.

If there was a 3 tonne limit, enforcement and decent signage, they would use the bypass.

I believe Dave is right - my understanding is that weight limits / access only will be put in place when the Eastern bypass is built, to stop lorries coming through the town.
