The Leitch Report on Truck Road Assessment was published early in the New Year. It covers a range of topics traffic forecasting, the overall framework for scheme assessment, cost benefit analysis, the Regional Highway Traffic Model, and other factors.

Because of its serious implications for distribution, we are reproducing here in full the relevant Appendix from the Report.
