How does HS2 affect me?
The construction of a project on the scale of HS2 will require the removal and delivery of large quantities of materials throughout the main construction phase along the line of route.
Vehicle Safety Requirements, above the legal minimum standards, will be adopted to protect vulnerable road users. Vehicles failing to comply with the above requirements will not be allowed on HS2 worksites,and driversworld be subject to suspension from all HS2 worksites.
Construction traffic refers to all vehicles over 3.5 tonnes which are making deliveries of construction equipment or materials, or moving quantities of excavated material on public roads. Vehicles and drivers will need to adhere to a number of standards and systems, including vehicle flows and road safety management, monitoring & control, vehicle identification and fleet operator quality plans, such as FORS standards. The Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS) standard is a voluntary standard that has been developed to protect vulnerable road users. Principal Contractors, and their supply chain, will be required to follow appropriate CLOCS requirements, including driver training and vehicle safety.
