• What are the impacts, challenges and opportunities for the transport and highways industry directly and the wider environment, housing and landuse, services, skills sector?
• What questions need to be explored/answered in order to enable the transition over the next 10 year for roll out from the 2030s onwards and to mitigate the risks to the freight sectors and by association UK trade?
