Virtual loading bay launches in City of London

Cross River Partnership (CRP), a non-profit and impartial partnership organization, is excited to announce that the Watling Street Virtual Loading Bay is now live in the City of London Corporation. The Virtual Loading Bay is located outside the Ye Olde Watling pub and will be available to book for a six-month trial period.

Virtual Loading Bays allow registered delivery drivers to pre-book dedicated space at the kerbside to load and unload using the Grid Kerb Delivery booking application. The trial will focus on servicing Ye Olde Watling and Williamson Tavern as a specific use case and will also be available to local businesses in the Watling Street area.

The Watling Street Virtual Loading Bay forms part of CRP’s Kerbside Management Trial, which is being delivered in partnership between the City of London Corporation, Grid Smarter Cities, and Cross River Partnership. The trial uses Grid’s Virtual Loading Bay technology to manage the kerbside dynamically and aims to improve congestion and air quality in the local area.
