Mr. Davies, who is also COO at John Raymond Transport/Nolan Transport GB, added: “Roads are the only option for many businesses and communities in Wales. Bottlenecks on key routes makes transport costlier than it needs to be. Ministers must recognise these realities and commit to road improvements like an M4 Relief Road we desperately need.”
Martin Reid, RHA Policy Director for Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland called on officials to ensure infrastructure projects are completed as quickly and efficiently as possible. He urged the Welsh Government to work with industry on ensuring the needs of transport and logistics businesses are met on future initiatives like the Freight and Logistics Plan. “It’s vital we secure significant roads improvements and plug skills gaps to attract investment and boost the Welsh economy,” he said.
