FM Conway paves way for ULEZ compliance with £7m fleet upgrade09 March 2018

Construction services business FM Conway has announced a £7 million investment in its vehicle fleet ahead of the proposed extension of London’s ultra-low emission zone (ULEZ).

The mayor of London’s plans would see the ULEZ expanded across the capital for HGVS from 2020 and up to the North and South Circular roads for all vehicles from late 2021.

The operator is acquiring 25 new HGVs and 136 1.5-tonne, 3.5-tonne and 7.5-tonne vehicles. The new purchases include 60 7.5-tonne vehicles and 17 eight-wheel tippers, which meet Euro VI standards, to transport highway arisings and recycled-content asphalt mixes to and from FM Conway’s operational sites and its recycling plants around the capital.

The new vehicles are due to arrive between Q1 2018 and Q1 2019, and will bring the company’s fleet to more than 900 vehicles.

Peter Parle, FM Conway’s transport manager, said: “Whether it’s investing in plant and vehicle emission technology or cycle safety, FM Conway aims to pave the way on best practice for construction logistics.

“This latest move will ensure that our vehicle fleet continues to meet the highest environmental standards, helping to improve London’s air quality and supporting our many construction projects in the capital.”
