FM Conway is delivering materials to sites around London using e-cargo bikes. The trial is to cut the construction vehicles entering into and around the capital with the contractor’s carbon footprint being reduced in numbers.
These electric bikes can carry materials of various sizes and weights including boxes of fittings and bags of sand. The capacity of each bike is to carry up to 250kg and is incorporated with GPS tracking and an electric pedal assist motor.
Besides, the average 18 tonne delivery lorry can carry a load of 10,000kg. These bikes are currently being monitored for Westminster City Council on phase two of the Illuminated River project.
