star this property answer text <p>Network Rail’s lineside engineers and surveyors consider a range of factors as part of their routine assessment of lineside trees, and whether these are considered safety critical or not. In the last year, there were more than a thousand incidents where trees caused disruption to the network, which in some cases resulted in injuries among train drivers and members of the public. Factors include the condition of the trees themselves, any identifiable hazards to oncoming trains and the safety risks associated with leaves on the line. This is in accordance with Network Rail’s own standards for vegetation management, which is based on existing forestry and environmental legislation.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Network Rail has a statutory duty to ensure that the railways remain safe throughout the year, and are therefore expected to intervene to address imminent safety risks or hazards that present themselves at the lineside, whenever this may be the case. As part of fulfilling this duty, Network Rail work with independent ecologists and arborists to identify nesting birds and protected species before commissioning any devegetation work, so that appropriate mitigation can be put in place to protect them and minimise disturbance.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The government is committed to reducing the adverse environmental impacts of transport. Reducing plastic and non-recyclable waste on public transport is predominantly a matter for transport operators. However, the Department for Transport (DfT) encourages improvements. For example, DfT sets targets in rail franchise agreements for operators to reduce waste to landfill and to increase the proportion of waste that is recycled.</p><p> </p><p>Network Rail (NR) has installed drinking facilities in nine stations to reduce plastic waste and plans to introduce facilities to all other NR-managed stations. By the end of 2020, NR plans to ban retailers from supplying plastic cutlery and cups, implement a coffee cup recycling scheme, and expand the roll-out of coffee ground recycling to all NR-managed stations.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
