posted: 17th Apr 2013

David Watson Transport now have 19 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.

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.

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