The Department has previously considered legislating to require sideguards to be retrofitted to specific heavy goods vehicles, but an impact assessment determined that such a policy intervention would incur disproportionate cost.</p><p> </p><p>Work is now focused on amending the Road Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1986 to ensure that, where sideguards are required on new vehicles, they are retained and maintained throughout the vehicle’s working life.

star this property answer text <p>The Government’s Rail Freight Strategy recognises the environmental benefits of shifting freight from road to rail, and the Strategy sets out a vision for how rail can increase its share of the freight market. The Government supports modal shift through funding improvements to the rail network for freight, investing £235m in Control Period 5 (2014-2019). The Statement of Funds Available for Control Period 6 (2019-2024) includes funding for continued infrastructure investment for both passenger and freight operators.</p><p> </p><p>The Government has set out an ambition to decarbonise the railway by phasing out all diesel-only trains by 2040, and the rail industry is due to respond to this challenge shortly. In support of the Government’s ambition, the Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB) announced in October 2018 that it is making funding available to facilitate research and innovation.</p><p> </p> more like this
