TCs report 2013: Western traffic area

  • 30 December 2013
  • By Roger Brown

According to Western traffic commissioner Sarah Bell the last 12 months have been a challenge for the industry.

She said: “Through my licensing and regulatory work, I see at first hand the successes and the failures, not just the broad figures, but also the impact on the people who sit behind those figures, the joy and the despair.  “Across the board there is an increase in work in the West of England, in part created by backlogs from staff shortages.”

Bell praised the work of trade association representatives in her traffic area, particularly Mike Moore and Nick Payne from the RHA and Ian Gallagher from the FTA.

She added: “They have helped me communicate with their members in a year where it is of particular importance because of the enhanced regime for transport managers settling in and the deadlines for Drivers’ CPC now on the near horizon.”
