TfL has been pressing HS2 to commit to a number of measures which will support a more robust HS2 construction through changes to the Code of Construction Practice.  One of these measures would be to undertake early monitoring for air quality and traffic volumes in and around HS2 construction worksites, particularly at high risk worksites.  These measures have been successfully adopted by Crossrail and also proposed by the Northern Line Extension. 

I will continue to press for higher standards to be adopted by HS2.
