Bojo Channel bridge rejected by hauliers

The Road Haulage Association has come out against Bojo’s Channel Bridge, describing it as a ‘bridge too far’. The 22 mile bridge connecting the UK and EU was suggested by the Foreign Secretary at a meeting with the French President Emmanuel Macron during his visit to the UK.

But Road Haulage Association chief executive Richard Burnett pointed out: “The Channel Tunnel and the ferry routes are working well within capacity, so it makes no sense to commit huge amounts of taxpayers’ money in an uncertain economic climate to a costly bridge project that we don’t need.

“We’re better off spending smaller amounts of money on improving our crumbling roads and opening more lorry parks.”
