Longer semi-trailers (LSTs) have cut lorry mileage and there are no signs they lead to more injury accidents, according to the latest report on the trial. 

The Government launched the LSTtrial in 2012, initially permitting 1,800 of the trailers, which  can be up to 2.05m longer than the current standard semi-trailers  (15.65 metres instead of 13.6 metres). In January, the Government announced it would allow a further 1,000 LSTs to operate.
