Network Rail to use river barges

Network Rail will use river barges to move material for the re-development and rebuild of Blackfriars Station.  The company plans to deliver over 14,000 tonnes of material by barge to build the station’s bridge deck, to construct longer platforms and a roof spanning the river.  The barges will also remove some 8,000 tonnes from the site.

Using the river will remove some 2,000 lorry journeys from the city roads over the next two years and reducing the carbon footprint of the project. www.networkrail.co.uk
