The Scottish government has been urged to bring the speed limit for HGVs into line with the rest of the UK and overhaul the apprenticeship levy in a budgetary submission by the RHA, writes Chris Tindall.
It has also called for the government to honour existing commitments on critical infrastructure and increase investment to develop the strategic road network, including ferry routes.
Ahead of the Scottish Budget for 2024/25, the RHA said it needed to reduce the disparity in skills funding with England and the competitive disadvantage Scottish hauliers face when recruiting and planning for the future.
And it added that planning needed to be reformed to support the creation of secure lorry parking facilities north of the border.
