DELIVERY MANAGEMENT AND TRUCK HOLDING AREAS
With an additional 436 towers (20 storeys +) approved for construction in London, the construction industry is already a significant contributor towards road congestion in London. By looking at journeys made by HGVs to and from construction sites, TfL aim to implement systems that will help alleviate the pressure on the road network. The aim of this research is to provide TfL with recommendations for the construction sector and local authority planners, for effective use of Delivery Management Systems, truck holding areas and CLP.
INVESTIGATING BARRIERS TO RIVER AND RAIL TRANSPORT
The scope of this research project was to investigate the barriers that exist in preventing the greater movement of construction materials and waste by river and rail within London. Enabling the transition from traditional construction logistics methods to a tailored sustainable approach, that reduces conflicts on London’s roads, has the potential to address some of the major conflicts emerging through primary road usage.
