Logistics UK urges members to respond to TfL survey ahead of DVS tightening


Logistics UK is urging its members to respond to a Transport for London (TfL) survey before the transport body moves to implement the next phase of its Direct Vision Standard (DVS).

The second phase of the DVS will require all HGVs over 12 tonnes gross vehicle weight (gvw) to be either a minimum of three-star rated or fitted with the Progressive Safe System (PSS) to enter Greater London from October 2024.

TfL has commissioned Loughborough Design School to undertake a comprehensive review of available technologies and make recommendations. In preparation for the implementation of Phase 2 of the DVS, Loughborough is conducting a survey to enable TfL to consider industry feedback alongside the ongoing review.

Natalie Chapman, Head of Policy – South, Logistics UK, said: “TfL is keen to consult as widely as possible with all parts of the transport sector to capture the current thinking of the industry. We are encouraging all members that deliver into the capital to complete the survey – which should take no more than 15 minutes to complete – and make their views heard.”

The survey can be accessed here.

Once the proposals are fully developed, TfL will conduct a full public consultation later this year.
