The Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) are running a project on behalf of the Department of Transport to review current Cycle Regulations. Part of the review covers the options for reducing the burden of UK regulation currently applying to electrically assisted pedal cycles (EAPCS). This aspect is especially relevant for Cycle Logistic operators who want to carry heavy loads.
Attached are notes from the workshop session held on 19 November 2012 at the Deperatment of Transport in London.
Hopefully the restictive weight limit issue may get removed.
I have been asked to point out that nothing in the notes represents the views of the Department of Transport or should in any way be construed as indicating future changes in legislation - they are simply a record of stakholder views and ideas that will help the TRL study and DfT in their future deliberations.
If you have any comments/views can I suggest you direct them directly to Brian Robinson at TRL who is responsible for the project firstname.lastname@example.org
