MTS back Crossrail Initiative

MTS has begun driver training and vehicle modification in support of Crossrail's programme to increase awareness of HGVs with cyclists and other vulnerable road users.

All Crossrail contracts contain mandatory requirement for HGVs working on the project to be fitted with sensors and other safety equipment to alert drivers of cyclists, and MTS have wasted no time in becoming compliant.

Vehicles already Crossrail compliant include 6000 and 4000 gallon Vacuum Tankers, ADR Spec Tankers, Super Sucker Tankers and Combination Jetting units. This means that MTS is equipped to undertake any works required on the Crossrail project; from general tankering of wastes to chemical removal, deep lifting and jetting.

MTS HGV driver training is ongoing and many have already attended Crossrail's one-day course, which is specifically designed to increase driver awareness in relation to sharing London's roads safely with cyclists and other vulnerable road users.

The lorry driver induction training course was developed in consultation with cycling and road safety campaign groups including RoadPeace, London Cycling Campaign (LCC) and Cyclist Touring Club (CTC).

Long-serving MTS Class 1 driver/foreman Dave Poynter said: 'I found the course very informative, there seems to be more and more cyclists on the road these days especially in the City. Any form of course regarding road safety is a good idea in my opinion.'Mr. Poynter added: 'The course also gave me seven hours towards my Driver Qualification Card.'
