TfL at Sitematch London: update
Thu 31st January 2013, 9:40 am
Transport for London's London Underground Infrastructure Protection Team will participate in the next Sitematch London event on 5 March to meet developers.
Jonathan Cornelius, senior property manager at TfL, described the role and background of this team: "London Underground's infrastructure protection team was established 20 years ago as a specialist team dedicated to working with developers carrying out work near the tunnel or open sections of the Underground.
"Our purpose is to avoid disruption not only to the railway but also to the adjacent development works through providing timely advice on engineering issues and processes that need to be followed.
"We provide a unified service including information on location of our assets relative to development sites, reviewing planning documents, technical input to agreements and party wall matters, advising on risk assessments, method statements, design documents and impact assessments, arranging track access and all the other matters that make work in the railway environment more challenging."
Representatives of the team will be present at Sitematch to answer developers' general or site-specific questions. They will arrange follow-up meetings after the event if required.
Every meeting booked with TfL will include a senior member of the organisation's property team and one from the infrastructure protection team.
