ABSTRACT
The Vauxhall Motors company, in another environmental-related initiative, is returning to the railroads for the delivery of the Astras to Europe. The first shipment, destined for customers in Germany, is part of a long-term feasibility study which looks at ways the company can further reduce its impact on the environment. An average of 70 Astras a train can be transported from the Richard Lawson loading site at the Ellesmere Port's Rossmore Industrial Estate to Purfleet, prior to shipping to continental destinations. Each train-load brings a reduction of ten transporters to the motorways or 3,500 miles of travel and 500 gallons of fuel. The plant hopes to be able to transport new Vectra hatchback models, for which it is the sole European producer, by railroad from April 2002.
