Scotland's Regional Timber Transport Groups are seeking your views as they assess the need for more investment in transport infrastructure, be this for public roads, in-forest links, rail, sea or other.
Information is initally being sought to identify opportunities which could address three key scenarios: -
- Specific infrastructure bottlenecks stopping timber flows (e.g. timber is landlocked due to extremely weak/non-existent roads where landing craft might be an option);
- Infrastructure difficulties resulting in timber only trickling out/being significantly restricted by limited frequency of loads;
- Infrastructure weaknesses that might impact on increasing timber flows
Further information can be found HERE, including a downloadable copy of the Excel spreadsheet which is being used to collate information; the spreadsheet includes notes for completion.
Responses are requested for no later than Sunday 25th November 2018.
