CLOCS MoU has been updated The CLOCS Working Group (comprising some 50 different CLOCS Champions) recently amended the CLOCS Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to help inform strategy development and support by the CLOCS team. It now includes a short form for each CLOCS Champion to outline its own CLOCS implementation plan as a construction client/contractor, as a fleet operator, as a communicator, or as a local planning authority – some organisation may have one or more of these functions. A copy of the new MoU is available at www.CLOCS.org.uk/MOU
We are writing to all existing CLOCS Champions asking them to complete a similar form online. We want to understand all Champions plans for adopting CLOCS and provide opportunities to define the scope and timescale for their implementation. If you are the lead CLOCS champion in your organisation and have not yet been contacted - email email@example.com.
Consultation on Proposed Direct Vision Standards for Heavy Goods Vehicles Transport for London (TfL) is holding the first of a series of consultations on proposals to implement a Direct Vision Standard (DVS) for Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs). The DVS aims to address the issue of HGV and vulnerable road user safety in London.
The DVS uses a zero to five ‘star rating’ system to rate HGVs based on how much a driver can see directly from the cab without using cameras or mirrors. Under the proposal ‘zero star rated’ HGVs would be banned or restricted from London‘s roads by 2020, and only HGVs rated three stars and above would be allowed from 2024.
The consultation is open until Tuesday 18 April 2017.
