Answered By: 
The Mayor

As a result of the Earls Court Development, TfL has negotiated an agreement with the contractors regarding the number of construction vehicles travelling to the site.  The agreement is that this will not exceed 10 vehicles per hour until summer 2015. Beyond this time TfL have required additional modelling to be undertaken to justify any potential increase in the number of construction vehicles to and from the site.

An agreement has also been reached between London Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham and TfL that during the first six months of Phase 1 (demolition stage), construction vehicles will use Warwick Road, A4 West Cromwell Road, North End Road and Old Brompton Road. 

There will be further discussions about the correct route after this period.

The boroughs and TfL are working together actively to minimise the impacts of these works on local residents and businesses and ensure construction vehicles do not use residential roads.
