Transport freight using trains instead of trucks
The transport of freight using heavy duty trucks is not sustainable and causes air and noise pollution. It is far more efficient and less costly to move freight on rails rather than building new roads to accomodate increasing truck traffic.
The draft Greenest City Action Plan will include directions that support less polluting, appropriately sized goods movement vehicles, including rail where appropriate. Trucks will still have a role to play for the forseeable future. Success requires support and leadership from regional, provincial, and federal partners.
I totally agree!
