Germany: BGL publishes alternative route map for HGVs
Germany’s national association for road freight transport, logistics and waste management (BGL) has once again published its special road map showing which roads are closed to trucks on all Saturdays between 7 July and 25 August in Germany.
The ban applies to HGVs of 7.5 t and over, as well as truck/trailer combinations, from 07.00 to 20.00.
The alternative routes that the BGL proposes have all been tested for their suitability for vehicles weighing up to 40 t. Planned major roadworks, road closures or other obstructions that could cause tailbacks and delays are marked on the map. (ben)
