CYCLISTS are being warned to take extra care as hundreds of 32 tonne lorries take head off from concrete plants in Bow and Battersea to deliver materials to a central London building site.
The deliveries start during evening rush hour tonight and continue for 36 hours with nearly 700 return lorry trips to keep up a supply of 12,500 tonnes of concrete into the foundations of Europe's largest building site at The Shard near London Bridge.
Lorries will leave London Concrete's Bow Midland depot in Wick Lane and from the site in Stewarts Lane in Battersea.
The London Cycling Campaign has published the lorries' routes and a map on its website www.lcc.org.uk
