Less than twenty years ago, our development at The Bridge in Dartford was a derelict, overgrown site. Today, The Bridge, a joint venture between Prologis and Dartford Borough Council, is home to over 1,500 new houses, 80 acres of public open space, schools, leisure facilities and a thriving business community. It’s also a development with sustainability at its heart.
From the very outset we set-out to build an environmentally-friendly community. This commitment was recently recognised when The Bridge won a Silver Award at the Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice, for its role in supporting an electric bus trial on the development.
Working with Kent County Council and Volvo Bus, Prologis and JLL (who manage The Bridge development on behalf of Prologis) supported a seven-week trial of an electric bus on Fastrack A – a high quality transport concept that links Dartford with Joyce Green, The Bridge, Crossway Business Park, Greenhithe Station and Bluewater shopping centre.
