The debate over the possible European-wide admission of mega-trucks, exceeding the length and weight standards currently in force, is reopening. More specifically the central issue is whether longer and heavier road vehicles (be they labelled "monster-trucks", "megatrucks", "gigaliners", or "ecocombis") measuring up to 25.25m in length and weighing up to 60 tonne should be allowed to operate on European road infrastructure.
