Webinar: Adapting UK’s Construction Logistics and Community Safety Initiative to Australia
Over the next decade Australia will undergo an unprecedented approx. $80 billion major city infrastructure build. The logistics activities associated with these major projects will generate a significant increase in the number of heavy vehicles transporting construction materials through metropolitan areas.

Australia’s two major rail infrastructure projects, Melbourne & Sydney Metros, both foresaw the potential risk that their projects posed to vulnerable road users (VRUs) due to the increase in truck movements through urban areas within which their building. To reduce the risk to VRUs and potential impacts to the community & productivity, the projects looked internationally & adapted what is recognised as best practice, Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS).

CLOCS is an industry-led programme, sponsored by Transport for London (TfL), with the aim of fundamentally changing the way the construction industry manages road safety. It was developed following a number of recommendations from an independent report by TRL highlighting the overrepresentation of the construction heavy vehicles involved in fatal collisions with cyclists during London’s construction boom & has since become its own standalone standard across the UK. CLOCS has saved lives, improved efficiency & provided consistency & certainty for the construction & transport sector.

The NRSPP recognised the opportunity of broader adaption of a CLOCS approach in Australia & signed an MoU with TfL to develop a local version which would be known as CLOCS-Australia (CLOCS-A).

This webinar will explore:
o The opportunity & risk of major infrastructure projects
o TfL CLOCS development, by Peter Binham, TfL
o How Sydney Metro adapted CLOCS into its safety standards & contracts by Jon Lamonte, CEO, Sydney Metro
o What safety standards in project contracts represent to Hanson, by Scott Tipping, GM Logistics
o VRU risk in Australia by Dr Marilyn Johnson, Amy Gillett Foundation
o Work to date & next.
