RHA says the Transport Select Committee is too cautious on all lane running

All lane running (the use of hard shoulders) is in the interests of all road users to minimise delays without compromising safety.

RHA director of policy Jack Semple said: “Motorways are where hauliers and their drivers do much of their work and safety is key. Big trucks need a safe place to work. All lane running can deliver this, with the right design.

“Motorways are among the safest roads we drive on and this status must be maintained. That can be done with all lane running with the right infrastructure in place and the right signalling.

“The RHA believes that all lane running has the potential to deliver much-needed environmental and efficiency improvements without compromising safety. It is short-sighted to rule it out.”
