The Irish Road Haulage Association (IRHA) has repeated its call for an exemption from the HGV Road User Levy for ROI hauliers on Northern Ireland roads. IRHA president Eoin Gavin told Motortransport.co.uk this week the levy, which came into effect at the start of April, had extended the already substantial costs differential faced by ROI hauliers compared with their Northern Ireland counterparts. He put these at around €30,000 (around £25,000) per annum including road tax, cabotage restrictions and vehicle testing […]
Non-payment of the HGV Road User Levy by foreign hauliers is a “major priority” for DVSA, according to transport secretary Jesse Norman.
All Severn Crossing tolls are to be scrapped by the end of 2018, the government has confirmed.
Northern Ireland is to extend HGV driving licences and reinstate specialist vehicle testing.
