TfL launched the revised Construction Logistics Plan (CLP) guidance on 2 May which includes safer routes to construction sites, as recommended by the TRL report 'Construction Logistics and Cycle Safety' (PPR640).

The new guidance specifically encourages construction logistics operators to use both strategic and local access routes that are agreed with the planning authority and advises that routes which may increase traffic risk to vulnerable road users should be avoided. Where this is not possible the routes are to be clearly marked, risk assessed and drivers trained and briefed to take extra care.

The guidance informs both property developers and borough planning authorities on how to implement a broad range of road risk requirements to help ensure the safety of vulnerable road users.
