19:00hrs weekdays and 07:00hrs to 14:00hrs on Saturdays;
Transportation, storage and removal of excavated material by conveyor,
barge and rail wherever practical;
Regular traffic liaison with highway authorities, Police, bus operators and
emergency services;
Application of the materials management hierarchy:
Road Transport Specific
No engines running whilst awaiting loading or off loading;
Specified and approved lorry routes, holding areas and route signage;
A means of monitoring lorry use and those routes prohibited from use;
Wheel washing;
Correct loading and sheeting of vehicles;
A control system for the despatch of vehicles carrying excavated
materials, demolition materials and other waste materials;

Booking System (VMBS)
• Communication with external parties such as Police,
TfL, local authorities etc, to obtain information on
factors which could affect vehicle movements
Traffic Co-ordination
Vehicle Movement Booking System
• Centralised system used by Contractors and
