"Motorways are easy in comparison and the drive to reduce freight costs will make this happen first."

You'd almost think a series of hubs or terminals on the outskirts of towns and cities, linked by dedicated transport routes for all the main freight, and then delivered into the town or city by small trucks and vans might be more efficient. We could call them "railways" and "freightliner terminals". The things on the "railways" could maybe even be driverless since they would be operating in a highly controlled environment inaccessible to the public or other unregulated vehicles.
