14320182555_863d6a19fa_b.jpg?profile=RESIZE_400xAN INNOVATIVE new delivery centre on the outskirts of Portsmouth, complete with a fleet of electric vehicles, could replace the need for many heavy goods vehicles to enter the city centre.

Up to £3.5m of government funding has been secured to create new consolidation centres in five locations across the Solent, as well as more localised kerbside drop-off and pick-up points to change how goods are transported.

The cash, which has yet to be approved for use by the Solent Transport Joint Committee, would also pay for electric cargo bikes and vans that would ferry products to shops, offices and other businesses after they are dropped off and sorted at a centre.
