FM Conway leads on air quality standards with £7m fleet investment
Leading infrastructure services company FM Conway has announced that it is investing £7 million in its vehicle fleet as part of its ongoing efforts to lead environmental best practice within the construction industry.
The move comes in advance of the proposed extension of London’s Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) – which has been out for consultation. The Mayor of London’s plans would see the ULEZ standard expanded city-wide for lorries from 2020 and up to the North and South circular roads for all vehicles from late 2021.
In total, FM Conway is investing in 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 Six standards, to transport highway arisings and recycled-content asphalt mixes from and to FM Conway’s operational sites and its recycling plants around the capital.
