Crossrail Camera Systems
  • Crossrail contracts contain mandatory requirement for lorries working on the project to be fitted with sensors and other safety equipment to alert drivers of cyclists 

  • Requirements  are being implemented with full support of Crossrail’s principal contractors

  • Trixi mirrors are being installed at left-turn traffic signals near Crossrail sites

  • Over 2,000 Crossrail lorry drivers have now completed road safety training


Crossrail’s contractor requirements mandate that all Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) working on the project are fitted with safety devices including blind spot proximity sensors, side under-run guards and warning alerts for cyclists.

As intensive construction for Crossrail gets underway, any HGVs not meeting Crossrail's strict standards are being turned away from worksites with the contractor liable for any costs incurred. This applies to HGVs operated directly by a contractor or on their behalf by a haulier.


Crossrail requires that HGVs are fitted with Fresnel lenses, side scan equipment which results in an audible beep in the drivers cab when a cyclist is on the left inside space. Under-run guards are also required to prevent cyclists from coming into contact with lorry wheels. Vehicles must also carry signs to warn cyclists and pedestrians.

​These mandatory measures are being implemented with the full support of Crossrail’s principal contractors. Higher requirements for safety devices on lorries have always been a Crossrail contractual requirement. A limited number of lorries have been turned away from Crossrail sites for non-compliance.


These measures support the wider work by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, and Transport for London, to improve conditions for cyclists on London streets by reducing the dangers represented by HGVs.
