Crossrail Compliant Hauliers

Crossrail is a railway currently under construction that has become Europe's biggest construction project and will link Berkshire and Buckinghamshire via London to Essex. Services will commence in May 2015 between Liverpool Street and Shenfield and will be extended to other parts of the route during 2018 and 2019.

Crossrail is a fully owned subsidiary of Transport for London (TfL) and in a bid to improve cycle safety on London's streets by reducing the dangers represented by HGV's Crossrail’s contractor requirements mandate that all Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) working on the project are fitted with safety devices including blind spot proximity sensors, reversing cameras, side under-run guards and warning alerts for cyclists to name just a few. As intensive construction for Crossrail gets underway, any HGVs not meeting Crossrail's strict standards are being turned away from worksites with the contractor liable for any costs incurred. This applies to HGVs operated directly by a contractor or on their behalf by a haulier.

On top of this all frequent drivers working on Crossrail sites must complete a dedicated training programme concerning sharing the road with vulnerable road users.

Various contractors are now also implementing these requirements to other non-Crossrail sites like The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

David Watson Transport now have 54 Lorry Loaders and Artics fully Crossrail compliant and have extensive knowledge and experience with working on Crossrail sites and the Olympic Park so don't risk your loads getting turned away.
