Government announces changes to the road user levy
The Government says that the cleanest lorries will pay less to use UK roads after it announced changes to the road user levy.
From February next year, lorries meeting the latest Euro VI emissions standards will be eligible for a 10% reduction in the cost of the HGV levy.
The cleanest lorries generate 80% less nitrogen emissions than dirtier ones, said the Department for Transport (DfT). Those lorries that don’t meet the latest emissions standards will be expected to pay 20% more.
