Touching Blue Limited has proposed a novel solution to a huge problem; one of the North's busiest roads. Major delays during peaks, high levels of emissions and noise, all of which are detriment to the local community. Growth in trade and traffic are expected to increase significantly by 2030 necessitating action.
The solution proposed by TBL involves removing most HGVs from the local network resulting in; reduced congestion, reduced emissions, and additional capacity for growth at the port but with no negative impact on the community.
A very important meeting will take place in October and I hope to provide an update soon after. As with anything radically new, getting beyond the perception of what is considered possible is a large part of the battle. TBL tends to see solutions rather than barriers and we are confident that something significant can be achieved here.
