Cargo delivery bike trial
We recently trialled a cargo bike delivery on the project, making full use of the Transport for London cycle superhighway adjacent to the project.
We are one of the first construction contractors in London to have trialled this, so Transport for London were in attendance to capture this industry best practice. TfL’s London Development Impact Lead, Michael Barratt has tweeted about this already:

The cycle superhighway has up to 5,000 cyclists a day passing the project. This zero emissions cargo bike delivery was carried out by Speedy Plant Hire, and will hopefully be the first of many for us.
