Palace Of Westminster: Repairs And Maintenance

(asked on 5th September 2023) - View Source


To ask the Senior Deputy Speaker, further to his Written Answers on 30 January (HL4799) and 13 February (HL5334), what comparable sites were considered, when identifying best practice, which have multiple police on duty at exits onto the public highway.

This question was answered on 19th September 2023

Direct comparisons were not made to other sites which have multiple police on duty at exits on to the public highway. The traffic control measures that have been put in place were based on risk assessments, traffic modelling carried out prior to the operation of the one-way system, stakeholder engagement, and construction industry best practice. On construction sites pedestrians and traffic are almost always segregated, but where this is not possible, such as on the Parliamentary Estate, additional mitigations are required.
