HGV & Abnormal Load Parking - ESTA Survey

11 Jun 2024 09:31 | Anonymous

ESTA has identified the lack of parking spaces and rest facilities for HGV drivers in general and Abnormal Transport drivers in particular as one of our focal points.  ESTA is a member of ESPORG (European Secure Parking Organisation - developing better and safer parking spaces for all goods transport).  Consequently ESTA has been invited to join a study on the requirements for truck parking in the EU. This is a UK problem as well as in the EU so it is important that we, as an industry, make our voices heard.

ESTA (European Association of Abnormal Road Transport and Mobile Cranes) is the unique European arm for trade associations representing abnormal load operators, access platforms and mobile cranes. The HTA is the UK representative of ESTA.

We would appreciate if you could take part in the survey below and share it with your employees, colleagues and network.  This survey is part of the Study on the availability of suitable rest facilities for professional drivers and of secured parking facilities, as well as on the development of safe and secure parking facilities in the EU (MOVE/C1/SER/2023-138).  The Study is commissioned and funded by the European Commission. We need the input of drivers, coach operators, transport companies and other stakeholders in the industry.

Your feedback will play a significant role in helping understand the current situation better and to identify areas where improvements can be made as well as developing effective solutions to enhance the well-being and safety of professional drivers across Europe.
