'Getting Freight Off the Roads' Meeting in Parliament


Jeffrey Donaldson MP and Jack Brereton hosted an event in Parliament to promote the idea of getting freight off the roads by using light rail infrastructure adapted for freight.


Opening the event, Jeffrey Donaldson MP highlighted the problems of logistics, productivity and climate change that are caused by an over reliance on road freight. 


In response to this, Karl Watts of Rail Operations Groups described how new light logistics trains - the next stage of development within rail freight - can reduce this over reliance, and he described how Rail Operations Group is working on a rail-based solution to drive a modal shift from road to rail.  


Commenting on the event, Jack Brereton MP, a prominent member of the Transport Select Committee said that use of these new light logistics trains are an important component of meeting carbon targets, of improving reliability of delivery and cutting deaths on the roads.
