Yeah of course there's additional handling - but that happens anyway. Wee bin lorries collect your crap from your bin and take it to a transfer station where it is loaded onto F-Off bin lorries and transported along already busy roads to landfill or another transfer station, port or power plant. The same holds for food distribution and many other goods.
The plan is simply to get big stuff off the roads. Alternatively we could employ engineers (navvies) to widen motorway networks across the land. Don't believe all you write in newspapers :wink:


One Less Car (car being used in a very generic sense)

Fracking has been going on in this country on a smaller scale for the last 25 years and no-one bothered...

...we can't continue to be held to ransom by Ras-Putins ex-KGB mob for our sources of energy!

Then use less, with putting more on canals and trains.
