Do you run trucks in Scotland? LEZs are coming and it’s important to be prepared. Need to find out more? Then get 2 April 2020 in your diary.
The Scottish Government has committed to introducing LEZs across its four largest cities by the end of this year, while further air quality hotspots areas are expected to follow suit by 2023.
Glasgow was first off the mark, launching its LEZ in 2018 focusing firstly on cleaning up the bus sector, however this will extend to all vehicles by the end of 2022.
Meanwhile, Edinburgh’s LEZ is rapidly taking shape following public consultation, alongside plans from Aberdeen and Dundee.
To explain how the new regulations will impact on truck operators, Motor Transport is teaming up with sister title Transport News magazine to host a special ‘Low Emission Zone Roadshow’ at BT Murrayfield, Edinburgh on Thursday 2 April 2020.
You’ll hear first-hand the details behind Edinburgh’s LEZ from senior council officials, as well as more about the wider air quality strategy across Scotland from key national representatives.
Clean vehicle technical experts and suppliers will also be on hand as we guide you through the preparation plans for these important new rules.
The half-day roadshow is completely free to attend, but places do fill up quickly so make sure to register today to secure your attendance.
If you’d like to get involved as a speaker, sponsor or exhibitor at the roadshow please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
