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.”
