Facilities

 

We’ve launched our RHA Driver Facilities Campaign to secure more lorry and coach parking, and improve the standard of facilities. 

We’re supporting these efforts through a number of initiatives that will evolve over the months ahead. 

We’re pressing the UK Government to work with industry to come up with long-term solutions, increase funding for facilities, and update the planning framework. 

Improving driver facilities – RHA Facilities Campaign launches today

Introducing our RHA Facilities Campaign to improve driver facilities on our roads. The campaign will highlight the need for drivers to have access to proper roadside facilities if they are to effectively carry out their crucial role of keeping our supply chains moving. The campaign will highlight the importance of driver welfare and wellbeing. It’s the third of three major initiatives we’re running following the RHA Skills and RHA Environment campaigns we recently launched.

Our RHA Facilities Campaign will support the ‘business as usual’ work we do to press for the facilities our drivers deserve.

We have launched the campaign with a petition – and we are asking members and others in the industry to add their support so we can take it to Government.

What we’re aiming to achieve with the RHA Facilities Campaign

We’ve set out three aims:

  1. Secure more lorry and coach parking
  2. Improve the standard of driver facilities
  3. Establish RHA as a leading advocate for increasing and improving driver facilities

We’re supporting these efforts through a number of initiatives that will evolve over the months ahead.
