TCs report 2013: North West traffic area

  • 29 December 2013
  • By Roger Brown

According to senior TC Beverley Bell, 2012-13 has been a busy year for the commissioners, not just in carrying out their regulatory roles but also in their engagement with the road transport industry.

She said: “I look forward to working on behalf of commissioners with (Vosa and DSA chief executive) Alastair Peoples and his board over the coming year to ensure that we are properly resourced and financed for without this we cannot be effective.”

With her hat on as TC for the North West, Bell remarked that sometimes a regulator’s life can be a little lonely and that it is always good to “phone a friend”.

She explained: “In the North West I know that I can rely on many such friends from the industry. “My regular engagement with the Freight Transport Association (FTA) and Road Haulage Association (RHA) is vital in my role and I know that these organisations will always be a critical friend where needed whilst at the same time offering me their unstinting support.”
