New site lads, this because the old sites where unsuitable for a 7.5 tonne vehicle never mind 2 artics. The new site for Lanarkshire is a secure haulage site that has a vast area to liberate 8,000 if needed. Its on the A6071.

Not to my knowledge Frank but as Gareth says there is a huge open area between Longtown and Gretna on the 6071 with the Peat moss works on one side and the 14MU on the other! So could be in either of them? The peat moss plant is owned by Humax who also have a haulage setup?
