FTA expects council strike to cost £1m

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) estimates that the 24-hour strike of council workers will, as a consequence of closures and reduced capacity at bridges and tunnels, result in £1m disruption to the strategic roads network.

It has quoted the figure as the consequence of the need for diversions, roads congestion and delayed or lost deliveries.
