Plan to ban

leave a comment »

The centrepiece of forthcoming British government strategy on air quality will be a ‘plan to ban diesel and petrol car and van sales completely by 2040’, the Guardian reported.

'Britain to ban sale of all diesel and petrol cars and vans from 2040', The Guardian

If this ‘ban on small petrol and diesel road vehicles’ is true, it would seem a little odd for the government to have been encouraging new-build diesel trains across the national rail network, and cutting back main line electrification only last week. With the life of trains generally being a lot longer than for automobiles, rolling stock ordered today could be in use well beyond 2040.
