Cabinet secretary for transport, infrastructure and connectivity, Michael Matheson, will be opening the Scotland Clean Air Roadshow in Edinburgh with a topical keynote speech.

He joins an impressive line-up of speakers and vehicle experts at the free half-day roadshow aimed at helping freight operators understand Scotland’s incoming low-emission zones.

Held at Murrayfield Stadium on 2 April, the event will run through current and forthcoming low-emission zone proposals for Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow, all of which are due to be in place by the end of the year.

You’ll hear directly from senior policy-makers in the opening session, with ample opportunity to ask your own questions to the panel.

This will be followed by two workshops and a chance to view the exciting range of Euro-6 and alternatively fuelled trucks and vans on show and speak to leading manufacturers about your business requirements.
