We have committed to using river transport as much as possible to reduce the number of heavy goods vehicles on the roads.

For Carnwath Road Riverside we anticipate an average of two barges overall per day, and potentially a peak of four barges per day, subject to the tides, with each barge taking approximately 45 heavy goods vehicles off the road.

An anticipated daily average of 19 heavy goods vehicles will access the site. This will rise to approximately 45 per day for about 17 months during the main tunnel construction.

It is proposed that approximately two-thirds of materials will be moved by river and approximately one-third will be moved by road.

  • There is an acoustic shed over the tunnel drive shaft 

  • All static machinery and plant is being screened/enclosed

  • Hoarding has been erected on the site boundaries

  • Vehicle movements outside of standard hours are be restricted

  • Use of low level directional lighting

  • Set limits to control activities, such as noise (Section 61 approval) from LB Hammersmith & Fulham
