Improved Road Links Announced

Improved Road Links Announced

In his Budget Speech this week, George Osborne promised “Major new commitments to the national infrastructure projects of the future.”

This will include; “…finding new money to create a 4-lane M62” and developing the case for a new tunnelled road from Manchester to Sheffield.

For the North Pennines, he promised funding to upgrade the A66 and A69.

Improvements to our road system are always welcome, as is the announced freeze on fuel duty.

Another welcome announcement was the halving of tolls on the Severn Crossings by 2018.

The Budget appears to be small business friendly, but as with all previous Budgets we would be prefer to await the in-depth analyses by the financial experts before getting too enthused.

New Member Portal


The AIM website has undergone a major technical overhaul this week as part of a multi-stage project to improve its benefit for members.

Though the recent changes are not immediately apparent, (apart from an improvement of speed) they pave the way for implementing a new hi-tech portal which is currently being developed.

The new portal will make several of AIM’s free member services even easier to use and will reduce administration tasks for new and renewing members.

We will release more details when the portal is launched.

COVID-19 Statement

Although there is no rule to prevent them from doing so, not all removals businesses are working during the Coronavirus measures advised by the Government.

Those that are working have been provided with clear guidelines by the Government and supported by AIM, with safe working procedures, specific documents and frequent information updates.

Removals firms

Removal firms are able to operate and should follow the latest government guidance on safer working. Where moves are carried out, social distancing should be followed.
Companies should ensure employees understand how to operate safely and communicate this to customers.

  • Removers should contact the household in advance to check that no member of the household is showing symptoms of coronavirus or self-isolating. If they are, works should be delayed.
  • They should also encourage households to ensure all internal doors are open and surfaces and possessions have been cleaned with household cleaning products prior to them entering the property.
  • No work should be carried out by a person who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild.
  • Removers should wash their hands on entering the property using separate towels of paper towels which need to be washed or disposed of safely after use.
  • Removers should seek to minimise contact with homeowners and remain 2 metres apart from householders at all times.
  • Removers should implement a buddy system and ensure that the same people work together when moving bulky items and furniture.
  • Removers should bring their own refreshments but you should ensure they have access to hand washing facilities, using separate towels or paper towels if possible,
    which should be washed or disposed of safely afterwards.
