Delivery of the seven 11 tonne steel props and six 63 tonne trusses involved extensive planning.
Initial route studies and swept path analysis reports were undertaken by our Collett’s Consulting Team analysing several routes within the M25 London area to identify the most suitable path for the loaded vehicles to take.
Detailed negotiations were also undertaken with the Metropolitan Police, Transport for London, London Boroughs, London Underground, Network Rail and Canal & River Trust on proposed routing within the capital.
Deliveries of the props from Middlesbrough to London took place over four consecutive days with the trusses following shortly after over three consecutive days.
Collett said: “After the months of planning and liaising with all other invested parties, our Team delivered all thirteen of the cargoes directly to the construction site over a period of seven days.
“Certainly a challenge given the rapidly changeable climate of Central London, our Teams continued with professionalism carrying out the project to the highest standards whilst dealing with the volumes of West End London traffic in an incredibly busy location.”
