Exciting Updates on the Waterloo Freight Hub

25th June 2024 / Posted by Ross Phillips

Over the past few months, the CRP team has been busy working on securing permissions for the Waterloo Freight Hub to deliver a 6-Month Road-Fed Trial from a small space in the Waterloo undercroft.  

Parcels will arrive in the undercroft in 2 van trips in the morning, before being sorted and sent by up to 10 cargo bikes across all of London. With up to 3.5 million people and 200,000 businesses in inner London, this trial could impact a significant number of people.  

After positive conversations with partner organisations Network Rail, Department for Transport and London & Continental Railways, the Department for Transport have agreed for the 6-month project to go ahead. CRP is grateful for the support of the stakeholders on this project.  

The next steps will be to prepare the small space in the undercroft for the project, before the 6-Month Trial kicks off in the coming months.
