The Government’s proposals to introduce longer freight lorries onto our roads are worrying.

Such proposals would not only increase the danger to cyclists but also shift freight off the railways and onto the roads instead, meaning more greenhouse gas emissions and damage to road infrastructure.

I have written to the Department for Transport to express my concerns about the thought of longer HGVs coming through our towns and villages.
