To keep heavy lorries off the pedestrian streets as much as possible,
businesses with the highest freight requirements – furniture stores,
light industry, etc. – are located along the edges of car
parks and roads within districts.
Loading zones, highlighted here in yellow, allow for direct delivery/collection of
freight from two directions:
Since rail is a far more efficient means of transporting
goods over long distances than lorries, companies should be encouraged
to use the city's rail freight depot.
And the most efficient way of delivering containers from
the rail freight depot to businesses around the city is by trolleylorry.
Trolleylorries would share the trolleybus network outside of peak
hours, approaching their destinations as close as possible using the
overhead lines, and then switching to battery power for final delivery.
Where necessary, cars and vans are permitted to use the pedestrian streets for the
heavy goods, but they may travel no faster than walking speed and pedestrians
still have priority.
