HS2 will be 'good neighbour'

HS2 Ltd, the company planning to build Britainís new high speed railway, says it is "moving closer to becoming a good neighbour" by formally consulting on its draft Code of Construction Practice.

Measures will explain how contractors will build the line in a "way that learns from the best practice established by HS1, Crossrail and the Olympics".

They will include lorry drivers attending courses, GPS tracking of tipper lorries and pollution controls on site, ranging from emissions to site run-off and litter and cigarette ends.

This consultation will give everyone a chance to comment on our approach to construction management.

We feel that the measures included in this draft Code of Construction Practice will set the standard for construction throughout the industry and we welcome the publicís feedback on this.
