Allowing high capacity vehicles onto UK roads under controlled conditions could save between £90 million and £135 million a year, according to a report by the University of Huddersfield. In addition, carbon emissions could be reduced by between 38 thousand and 58 thousand tonnes a year, and the safety of road users would not be compromised. The study, Impact Assessment: High Capacity Vehicles, was carried out by the Business, Operations, Supply Chain & Transport Research Group of the University of Huddersfield  and was commissioned by Kimberly-Clark Europe.
