Infrastructure services firm FM Conway is trialling electric cargo bikes to deliver construction materials to sites around London.
The trial is a bid to cut the contractor’s carbon footprint by reducing the number of construction vehicles travelling into and around the capital.
The bikes can each carry up to 250kg and are fitted with an electric pedal assist motor and GPS tracking.
Adam Barnes, Senior Contract Manager at FM Conway, said to Construction Enquirer: “I am now more motivated than ever to incorporate their use into our site logistics model within central London and further investigate their use in site operations in other areas of the business.”
