Transport for London (TfL) has urged construction workers to walk or cycle all or part of their journey.
The organisation also called on employers to change operating hours or stagger shifts to help people avoid the busiest travel times (0545 to 0815 and 1600 to 1730).
TfL said that it would ensure “alternative routes” remain
available for construction traffic as it launches its Streetspace for London
plan to include new cycleways and widened footpaths to encourage more walking
and cycling. But it warned that works to make the changes could affect kerbside
access for deliveries at some locations and times.
It also encouraged companies to instruct all those who can
work from home to continue to do so, as well as making sure that site
facilities offer lockers, showers and cycle storage are available to those
walking and cycling.
TfL called on contractors to communicate with other major
neighbouring sites to ensure that workers’ arrival and departure times were staggered,
and to consolidate and retime the transport of materials to and from the site
to avoid the busiest times on the road (currently between 0600 and 0900 and
1600 and 1900).
