A significant transport issue in Derbyshire, as identified in the document, relates to be the impact of HGVs including mining and quarrying traffic on local communities and other road users. In some areas, heavy goods vehicles can account for up to 25% of traffic. The HA would like to see a future reduction in lorry mileage and associated carbon reduction benefits as well as safeguarding the operation of the Strategic Road Network.
