Drones Being Used to Transport Scaffolding in a Bid to Lower Pollution Levels

As a further step towards the Government's plan for lower pollution levels in the UK, a London based scaffolding firm have taken the opportunity to meet the new requirements on vehicle pollution by modern technology to aid transportation.

By using heavy-duty drones that have been manufactured specifically for transporting large quantities of product, MR Scaffolding Service Ltd will deliver materials to sites in and around London. The company will ensure that this new method abides by the Ultra-Low Emission Zone requirements which state that from April 8th, 2019, any HGV vehicle that is not using a low emission engine will inevitable face a £100 fine, every time the drone enters the zone.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, stated “The air in London is lethal and I will not stand by and do nothing. But the scale of our air quality challenge is so big that I need to go further. I want to expand the ULEZ from 2020 for heavy vehicles such as buses, coaches and lorries so that all of London will benefit from cleaner air. Then from 2021, I want to expand it up to the North and South Circular roads for light vehicles, including cars and vans. These measures will help improve the air that millions of Londoners breathe”

“Now I urge the Government to step up and match my ambition to transform the appalling air we breathe. Ministers need to deliver a national vehicle scrappage fund, reform fiscal incentives like vehicle excise duty and pass a powerful new Clean Air Act to Act end the toxic smog in London once and for all.”

The Professor of Paediatric and Environmental Medicine at Queen Mary University of London, Jonathan Grigg said, “The Mayor of London is to be congratulated in bringing forward the date of the ULEZ. Reducing diesel emissions in the congestion charge zone will reduce exposure to toxic soot particles and gases. To maximise the effectiveness of this initiative, the Government must now act to remove the current toxic fleet of diesel cars, vans and buses from all our roads.”

The company is becoming increasingly established as they edge closer to this revolutionary milestone for the industry, Sir Richard Branson, has been closely involved with the process with the process. These machines have been modified with autonomous control technology and Space-X safety, making them able to lift heavy loads, faster and more safely – without spending excessive amounts of time in London Traffic.

Following a meeting on Necker Island between Sir Richard and the Managing Director for MR Scaffolding Services, John Trayfoot, John says “As a company, we’re very proud to be the forerunners of what could be the way forward in terms of delivering materials in our big towns and cities. We believe this is the future, and thanks to the backing of Sir Richard and Space-X technology, we can all contribute to the environment and bring something new and innovative to the industry. We’re all very excited.”

“The drones will be monitored and controlled from a secure central point, they all meet and exceed all the necessary safety guidelines. The world is changing rapidly, and we need to meet the challenges of the 21st century.”

MR Scaffolding Services Ltd is a family run business that is changing the future of construction transportation. If the process is successful with visible results, it will be the start of a long line of businesses who will transfer to this environmentally friendly approach to London’s pollution disaster.
