LEGISLATION IN LORRY ROUTEING - SIGNIFICANCE FOR SAND AND GRAVEL PRODUCERS

A new duty was imposed on local authorities by the Heavy Commercial Vehicles (Controls and Regulations) Act 1973, i.e. To survey their areas and to prepare proposals for lorry routeing. Only a few authorities have yet produced even draft proposals, but it is already clear that widely different views are held in different places about the necessary action. This note shows that, because of the nature of its business, the sand and gravel industry will be more adversely affected than others if lorry routeing networks are introduced, unless exemption is granted at least to the bulk of producers who rely on short-haul deliveries. Further consultations at both the national and local levels are required. The industry's case for exemption is outlined. (a) (TRRL)
