Oakray plans to beat the Olympic traffic congestion

Oakray, contractor for M&E services to a number of inner London authorities, plans to beat traffic congestion during the 2012 Olympics with motor scooters.

Oakray has purchased a number of 50cc petrol driven motor scooters as a means of transport for its engineers working on both the Westminster City Council and Haringey Council measured-term contracts, where it is responsible for the electrical and mechanical day-to-day responsive repairs.

Materials will be ordered directly from the engineers PDAs, where feeder vans will be available for deliveries during the evenings and early mornings, collecting materials and equipment from various strategically located stores throughout the boroughs.

The introduction of scooters as a means of transport rather than vans has not only led to a marked improvement in the travelling time saved by Oakray’s engineers when attending urgent repairs, but engineers have also found that parking a scooter is a lot easier than a van, the company said.
