• Decision on gigaliners delayed

    The transport commissioner Antonio Tajani says there will be no EU legislation allowing long-length lorries – often referred to as 'megatrucks' or 'gigaliners' – until at least next year.

    In an interview published on the website of the European campaign alliance No Mega Trucks, Tajani said no decision would be taken until next year at the earliest.

    He was also quoted as saying the bi-lateral agreements allowing the 60-tonne 25-metre lorries to cross the borders of a few member states were not compatible with current EU legislation, nor desirable.
