Expert adviser for freight transport
Dr. Jason Monios
In 2015 the Scottish Government’s Infrastructure and Capital Investment Committee conducted an inquiry into freight transport in Scotland, the first since 2006. The inquiry sought understand factors constraining the performance of the Scottish freight sector.
Highlighting the influential role played by TRI in the Scottish transport community, TRI’s Dr Jason Monios was appointed expert adviser to the committee for the duration of the inquiry, guiding the committee members through the process, leading site visits for the committees MSPs and being present at all hearings to advise the MSPs.
The final report of the inquiry challenges the government to address the issues uncovered and will lead to direct impacts via new policy and planning strategies for freight transport in Scotland.
