Cement mixing company Cemex has instructed its drivers to comply with the HGV ban in Copenhagen Street, near King’s Cross.
It follows complaints by Caledonian ward councillors. The street has three schools but HGVs are said to be using it as a shortcut to York Way.
Cllr Paul Convery said: “Cemex is the first of the cement manufacturers to take action and I thank them.
“Copenhagen Street has had a 7.5 tonne lorry ban for many years but HGV drivers have increasingly been using it as a shortcut.
“Next on the list is Hanson which also has a batching plant west of York Way and its drivers also use Copenhagen Street.

“Getting a company to voluntarily abide by the lorry ban is a start. But our longer term goal is to have a physical width restriction that will prevent all HGVs from entering Copenhagen Street near to its York Way entrance.”
