The Scotland Clean Air Roadshow
The Scottish Government has committed to introducing low-emission zones across major four cities by the end of 2020: Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Glasgow has already gone live with its zone, focusing firstly on buses with other vehicles brought into the scheme by 31 December 2022.
Aberdeen, Dundee, and Edinburgh are also all pressing firmly ahead with their own schemes, expected to be in place by the end of the year.
To explain how the new regulations will impact on truck and van operators, Motor Transport has teamed up with sister publication Transport News to create a must-attend free half-day roadshow.
You’ll hear from policy-makers, technical experts, vehicle suppliers, and your peers as we guide you through the preparation plans for these important new rules.
