2 Virtual Loading Bays are now live in the London Borough of Lambeth

18th March 2024 / Posted by Katherine Fairfax

CRP are excited to announce that 2 Virtual Loading Bays are now live in the London Borough of Lambeth! The 2 Virtual Loading Bays are located along The Cut, Waterloo and will be available to book 24 hours per day, free of charge, for a trial period of 6 months.

Virtual Loading Bays are dedicated spaces that can be pre-booked to deliver goods by participating operators with the Grid Kerb Delivery booking application. Freight operators using the Virtual Loading Bays on The Cut will be allowed to exit through the traffic filter in line with the existing exemption in place. This will help reduce the number of delivery and servicing vehicles needing to use the residential streets to exit the Cut once they have made their deliveries to local businesses.

The Virtual Loading Bays form part of CRP’s Kerbside Management Trial and are being delivered in partnership between London Borough of Lambeth, Grid Smarter Cities and Cross River Partnership. The trial uses Grid’s Virtual Loading Bay technology to dynamically manage the kerbside and aims to improve congestion and air quality in the local area.
