Government support for Nottingham’s decision to reject plans for a charging clean air zone (CAZ) had opened the door for other cities to follow its example, according to the FTA. The call follows approval by the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) for Nottingham’s plans to cut the city’s pollution levels. The city’s plans reject the CAZ option in favour of measures. These include retrofitting buses to Euro-6 standards and requiring the city’s taxis to improve their emissions […]
Tevva is to offer its UK-built range-extended electric truck on a seven year full repair and maintenance lease package.
The FTA has criticised the speed of the roll-out of fully segregated cycle superhighways in London, suggesting the scheme is being rushed through to coincide with the mayoral elections in May 2016.
Last week’s flurry of clean air zone (CAZ) announcements from major UK cities has left logistics operators in no doubt that the clock is ticking for Euro-5 lorries in urban areas.
