The Underutilised Water Freight Industry

Is this the crime of the century?

We are very concerned that construction companies habitually use the congested roads instead of the open waterways for transporting materials and waste. The Regent's Canal leads right into the heart of London and water transport is not as slow as people think. Barge capacity is much greater than road vehicle capacity and requires less pulling power. It is vibration-free and environmentally friendly.
