More Trucks On A75 Than Scottish National Average

THERE are almost 50% more trucks using the A75 Euroroute between Stranraer and Gretna than there are on average across the Scottish trunk road network, according to the Scottish Government.
A recent Freedom of Information (FOI) request enquired about ‘the national average of HGVs on the Scottish trunk network’ and specifically the ‘HGV percentage on the A75, and A77 trunk roads’.
The response was that the Scottish national average of HGVs on the trunk road network for 2019 was 14.0%. For the same period, the A75 westbound was 20.4%, and eastbound 21.0%, and the A77 northbound 13.3%, and southbound 13.6%.
