Hauliers Wanted For LHV Trial

THE GOVERNMENT is looking at trialling longer heavier vehicles (LHVs) of up to 25.25m in length and 60 tonnes gross vehicle weight and is on the hunt for operators interested in taking part in the trial.
The DfT has commissioned a feasibility study of LHVs, which is being carried out by a joint venture of design and engineering group WSP, Apollo Vehicle Safety and Risk Solutions. The study team will look at how an LHV trial could be designed and conducted. Current regulations limit vehicles to 18.75m and 44 tonnes.
As part of the feasibility study a survey has been launched to gauge industry appetite for operating longer vehicles, both in the short and longer term.
