Traffic and Highways

The construction of Crossrail required numerous temporary traffic management measures and highway works of differing duration and impact that were delivered through a number of different Crossrail contractors.  In addition Crossrail’s construction required the use of approved lorry routes by which heavy goods vehicles ferried material to and from the worksites. The traffic and transport impacts of these and related activities were assessed in the Crossrail environmental statement.   As set out in the Crossrail Construction Code special coordination meetings known as Traffic Liaison Groups (TLGs) consisting inter alia the local highway authority, emergency services representatives, Crossrail contractors and Transport for London were established to help co-ordinate works and minimise disruption to highway users.
