Megatrucks get EU thumbs down

There will be no cross-border transport with longer and heavier trucks in the European Union, following a vote by the Transport Committee in the European Parliament.

The MEPs reiterated their will to impose limits on ‘megatrucks’, which are 25 metres long and weigh up to 60 tons.

Up to now, they have only been used in Scandinavia and, on a trial basis, in the Netherlands and parts of Germany. That situation will remain as it is.
