HS2 Ltd, the company planning to build Britain’s new high speed railway, says it is "moving closer to becoming a good neighbour" by formally consulting on its draft Code of Construction Practice.
Measures will explain how contractors will build the line in a "way that learns from the best practice established by HS1, Crossrail and the Olympics".
They will include lorry drivers attending courses, GPS tracking of tipper lorries and pollution controls on site, ranging from emissions to site run-off and litter and cigarette ends.
