The FTA has welcomed the publication of more detailed information for operators ahead of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in July.

More information has now been published, including: the games route network, local area traffic and management plans, affected postcodes, and delivering to venues guide.

The FTA pushed for a postcoded set of restrictions following the publication of information that it regarded as “not complete in the format the freight industry needs to work with” last month.

Head of policy for Scotland, Chris McRae said: “FTA is pleased to see that after months of pushing for details we are now getting the information we have been asking for.

“The freight and logistics industry needs to plan ahead of such events to help ensure continuity of deliveries, servicing to existing customers and to prepare for the additional freight requirements that the Games will bring.”

The association hopes to share the updated plans at its ‘Managing deliveries and servicing during the Commonwealth Games 2014’ conference on 13 May.
