There are other air carriers connecting #Albania and #Italy, but so far no other airlines have cancelled their flights due to the #coronavirus outbreak. @Alitalia’s #Tirana- #Rome #Fiumicino AZ585, left Albania’s capital as planned on Sunday.
#Italy has placed up to 16 million people under quarantine as it battles to contain the spread of #coronavirus. Anyone living in #Lombardy and 14 other central and northern provinces will need special permission to #travel.

With the #UKCoordinationGroup & #EPlenary about to adopt a resolution on the EU-UK future relationship, here are some elements which would be of great help to integrated supply chains & logistics on both sides of the border @davidmcallister @berndlange @CHansenEU @EP_Trade 1/
1. 1st, a #transport agreement is an absolute must @davidmcallister @berndlange @CHansenEU @KarimaDelli : without an agreement, there is no fallback to allow traffic by road, rail & air freight to continue. Without it, planes won't fly & a very small number of EU & UK vehicles 2/
(trucks & vans) cld ever cross the border relying on a very limited number of ECMT permits (wouldn't even cover 5% of the traffic). The situation is just as serious for the island of Ireland since #transport is not dealt with in the Protocol part of the withdrawal agreement 3/

Disappointing to see #trade only mentioned in relation to anti-dumping & level-playing field measures + 0 tariffs & quotas in @MichelBarnier speech. Surely negotiators could do better, even in 10 months. Industry will need more than that, on both sides @StefaanDeRynck 1/
0 tariffs & quotas is important but not sufficient. You need to ensure industry can actually benefit from it (Rules of origin!). Something @Kommerskoll knows something about... Considering how prod & #supplychains are integrated, industry needs + than bilateral cumulation 2/
For #customs, a bare min. is to seek to retain the UK in the EU safety & security zone so that entry & exit summary declarations are not required. That's in line with the EU security coop objective & is vital for accompanied roll-on roll-off (Dover-Calais, Dublin-Holyhead...) 3/

🚨 #Safety #culture tweet thread 🚨

Invited by @SafetyClubUK on behalf of @SaRSociety (thanks teams !) I’ve just had a thought provoking day thinking about all aspects of safety culture, across #healthcare #aviation #defence #transport #nuclear
and more
scsc.uk/e631
But what did I learn ? What hit the 🎯?

Here’s a mash up of some of the best lines of the day...

✅How can you get it very right, right up to the point you get it badly wrong?❌

(Apologies for any mis-quotes @PatrickWaterso1 and others in team
@SafetyClubUK

#safetyculture
✅❓Foster a questioning attitude❓✅

#safety #reliability #risk

A “never event” is an event that should never happen, in healthcare and elsewhere. And yet they do...

Quelques éléments chiffrés et graphes pour compléter mon intervention sur le #ferroviaire et le #climat au colloque de l’@AFRA sur "Le train est-il un mode de #transport propre ?"

A dérouler ⤵️⤵️⤵️
"Propre" ? Non, tous les modes ont un impact sur l’environnement (même ceux qui se revendiquent 0 émission…).
➡️D’ailleurs, sur le CO2, le train a longtemps été + polluant que la voiture (env 3x plus en 1950), et l’est moins seulement depuis le début des années 60.
Mais depuis, le ferroviaire a largement réalisé sa propre transition énergétique
➡️Fin de la machine à vapeur (très inefficace) début années 70, qui était majoritairement au charbon
➡️Augmentation du remplissage des trains (nb de voyageurs ou t/train), env +70 % de 1960 à 2017

For the sake of clarity, #hauliers are NOT responsible for fulfilling the vast majority of #customs & #regulatory requirements needed to be admitted on board the ferry / in the port area to pick up or deliver goods. This is the responsibility of 1/ ft.com/content/0a37d1…
The #trader (acting as the 'importer' from an EU perspective). That task can be outsourced to an intermediary - of which there is a lack of in the UK so many companies are struggling to find the help they need. The #haulier needs to ensure his/her #driver is in possession of 2/
The right proofs that the required #formalities have been completed & responsible for dealing with the #safety & #security #declaration if the #cargo is transported through #accompanied #transport (which, again, is a task that can be outsourced). 3/

We have just published our Review of Energy Policy: 2018!
Check out the thread below for a summary of all our recommendations.
Read the review in full here: bit.ly/2BsqDqf
On #Transport: The target for phasing our conventionally fuelled vehicles is inadequate. The @transportgovuk ‘Road to Zero’ (‘ICE ban 2040’) may neither hit the target nor make the early gains needed for a 1.5°C trajectory. @_chris_brand_ @jillian_anable
On #electricity: policy should build on Electricity Market Reform that has worked well & adapt in the light of technology/cost changes. Change in ‘black start’ incentives & other ancillary services are needed to ensure the system remains resilient @energyukcomms @ngcontrolroom

Oh @cmrlofficial . Why so averse to learning? New stations, same old access problems. #Senior #Joyride thread - I spy with my jaundiced eye. #ChennaiMetro #A11y #Fails @DisabilityIndia
Really @chennaicorp ! This is the access to Nehru Park Chennai Metro station? At points the pavement itself is non existent with bus and Poonamallee High Rd traffic whizzing by. Senior citizen required support on both sides with parking 50 m away. @cmrlofficial @DisabilityIndia
1 foot footpath with trip with at one side and someone sitting blocking the other side of the tree. Not to mention the auto blocking the way too. #Pedestrian #Accessibility #NotACakeWalk

Who would have thunk!
British hauliers will need licenses and permits to be able to drive on European roads. In a no deal scenario there will be no way of getting UK goods into Europe!
Yup! This is not #Scaremongering but #facts
#BrexitMadness
The market access for British hauliers under a No deal scenario will only cover 3% of the needs.
#BrexitMadness #Transport
Check this thread where two experts on trade discuss the problem:
Take a look again at the situation on the Border with Turkey: Trucks driving into EU will need permit from every country they need to pass!
#CustomsUnion means free movement of goods but not trucks.
