Weights and Dimensions for Heavy Goods Vehicles
The European Parliament voted on April 15, 2014 the report on weights and dimensions for heavy goods vehicles at the Plenary in Strasbourg. The Plenary adopted the report from the transport committee with 604 in favour and 54 against. The report has been long under way and the Council still need to negotiate its position, which is expected for later this year.
The positive outcome of todays vote is that the movement of modular vehicles across the orders in the Nordic countries is not limited. The present practice can continue. This has been the objective of NLA to ensure political support for this necessary confirmation. The Commission will have to present a report in 2016 on such movements, so the discussion has not finished completely.
