star this property answer text <p>The Transport Decarbonisation Plan will consider the transport sector as a whole and the increased contribution that all modes need to make to achieve an economy-wide net zero target by 2050. Given the global nature of the aviation and shipping sectors sector, and their climate change impacts, effective and coordinated international action remains essential. Unilateral action by a single state leads to the risk that these highly mobile carbon emissions are simply moved overseas, therefore failing to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. The UK will continue its leadership role at the IMO pushing for the most ambitious measures to reduce GHG emissions from ships and negotiate for ICAO to agree a long-term emissions reduction goal by its 41st Assembly in 2022. Government will keep our approach to the inclusion of international shipping and aviation emissions in our legislation under review, taking account of progress in the IMO and ICAO.</p> more like this

When a HS2 Executive leaves HS2 Ltd, HS2’s Conflicts of Interest Panel ensures that appropriate arrangements are in place with respect to that Executive’s new employer at the time of leaving HS2 to ensure there is no prejudice to HS2. The Panel remind departing Executives of their confidentiality obligations and depending upon their role have placed restrictions on such Executive to not to work with HS2 for up to 12 months after they leave direct employment. It is not necessary to put any such arrangements in place where the former Executive leaves HS2 to join a company who does not service the rail, construction or transport industry. Any constraints placed on a person’s ability to earn a living must be compliant with legal obligations around restraint of trade. Further, any supplier bidding for work with HS2 Ltd is required to disclose any potential conflicts of interest which would include where former HS2 Ltd employees are part of the bidding or proposed delivery team.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Department for Transport has worked closely with the Kent Resilience Forum on developing traffic management plans, known as Operation Brock, to be used as a contingency in the event of severe disruption to travel via the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone and the Port of Dover. Operation Brock has been designed to ensure that the M20 motorway in Kent (the primary route to the Channel Tunnel and Port of Dover) will be kept open and traffic will continue to flow in both directions.</p><p>From Monday 28 October, a contraflow will be in place so that HGVs heading for mainland Europe use the coastbound carriageway of the M20 between junctions 8 and 9. All other traffic will run on the London-bound carriageway between these junctions. These arrangements will ensure that the M20 will be able to hold HGVs should traffic disruption result from delays to cross Channel services.</p><p>Operation Brock is intended as a replacement for Operation Stack during periods of severe and protracted disruption. Operation Stack involved closing junctions and carriageways on the M20 motorway to hold freight traffic in several locations. In contrast Operation Brock has been designed to allow traffic in Kent to keep flowing minimising congestion for the wider community, whilst providing the capacity to hold HGVs if needed.</p>
