The Department for Transport published an impact assessment as part of the public consultation about examining the speed limit for Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) over 7.5 tonnes on dual carriageway roads, which closed on 5 September 2014 (see https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/336308/consultation-impact-assessment.pdf). It is in the standard format, as is the impact assessment for single carriageways.
