If the government got it's way they would have hundreds of lorries a day running round uk motorways filled with this stuff. Fortunately mostly in kent at the moment

hope I'm nowhere near when this inevitably happens here

anything with petroleum in is a massive potential bomb

road tankers carry 37,000 ltrs of unleaded ........... BOOM


1 hit a support stanchion under the A38(M) in brum and melted the reinforcing steel inside the concrete and shut the road for 6 months, the driver was not lucky..........


BTW and empty used petrol tanker is just as dangerous and cant be worked on till its been de-gassed and certified safe

all tank vehicles can be dangerous flour and sugar tankers are an explosion hazard when empty it is how they are driven that matters and with so many lorry drivers on our roads of non UK origin the risk is greater as driver training standards are lower elsewhere in the world :wink:

USED TO be LPG traffic and Ammonia for fertilizers liquid Chlorine and Hydrocyanic acid :shock: :shock: :shock: but once the railways were privatised it all switched to road or disappeared with the closure of most of the chemical plants in the uk the only chemical/refinery complex still using rail is Lindsey and that is Jet fuel and Bitumen mostly not pressurised gases

Every garage in the country selling petrol gets at least 1 road tanker delivery per week...

25,000 ltrs of unleaded can make 1 hell of a mess

there are how many major airports vs how many BP/Shell garages?

the odds are much greater for the road fuel
