Covid Update: Barking Riverside Rail Extension

Over the past few weeks we have been in talks with the joint venture between Morgan Sindall and VolkerFitzpatrick who are building the Barking Riverside Rail Extension in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic that is sweeping the World.

The security plan has now be actioned. Zone Contractors have successfully put a team of security and maintenance staff professionals on site which is now in complete lock down. The client has provided sleeping accommodation, and full welfare facilities, which will enable the team to remain on site until further notice.

This serves two purposes 1 – Total protection of our clients assets  and 2 –  Segregation of the team from the public domain.

Mobile patrols on site will be maintained continuously along with CCTV cameras. Hopefully with the total segregation in place the risk of security personnel contracting the virus is greatly reduced

In consultation with the Senior Management Team, namely Richard Pollard, Steve Balliston, Liam McGreavy, and the Security Manager Paul Walker and Zone Contracts Manager Peter Harman a plan was formulated, risk assessed and implemented at short notice so as to provide the very best protection at this complex project in times of unhartered territory.
