Government Gives LSTs The Green Light

ALL HAULIERS will be allowed to use longer semi-trailers (LSTs) on Britain’s roads from 2022, the Department for Transport (DfT) has announced.
The decision follows a nine-year trial and a public consultation on LSTs, which DfT said found ‘overwhelming’ support for the vehicles. The trial concluded that the vehicles up to 15.65m in length were safer, more economical and better for the environment since they could remove up to one in eight freight journeys by carrying the same amount of cargo in fewer lorries.
