  • Abstract

    Best Practice Guides were produced in collaboration with Crossrail’s Tier 1 contractors and other industry specialist bodies. Guides were produced in response to specific project activities and were aimed at raising Health and Safety standards through the sharing of knowledge and experience of the companies working on the programme.

    This document details best practice standards specific to the movement of vehicles on a construction railway. The guide is designed to optimise safe operation whilst at the same time maintaining efficiency and productivity. The guide suggests minimum requirements for the safe operation and maintenance of the construction railway and vehicles.

    This document is relevant to operators and maintainers of construction railways with particular reference to tunnel boring machine operations.
