from the date that this Replacement Cover becomes effective under the Facility the
Insurer agrees that the Replacement Cover will apply to the Insured’s Policy, to the
extent that it differs and is broader from the Cover in Force, and any and all claims
arising under the Insured’s Policy on or after such date shall be determined in
accordance with the Replacement Cover.

Construction  Traffic  Management  Plan  relating  to  proposed  basement  and  associated  works  at:  
No. 1 Darnley Terrace, London W11 4RL –  

In  order  to  achieve  a  safe  working  environment  and  to  minimise  nuisance,  it  is  essential  that  the 
traffic management system be rigidly applied.  All access to, on and around the delivery area within 
Darnley  Terrace  /  St  James’s  Gardens  will  be  controlled  by  Cranbrook  Basements  at  all  times, 
including  their  contracted  works  and  in  conjunction  with  other  Trade  Contractors.    The  Trade 
Contractors shall co‐ordinate their access requirements with Cranbrook Basements so as to cause no 
disruption to their own or others activities. 

Cranbrook  Basements  will  satisfy  themselves  of  the  suitability  of  this  Site  entrance  including  the 
restrictions associated with this entrance.  Cranbrook Basements will supply all necessary personnel 
required to maintain the safe control of traffic and deliveries through and across the public highway 
into the site, this will include a traffic marshal/banksman as required. 

Cranbrook Basements will ensure that all deliveries and collections to and from the site are carried 
out between the hours of 8.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m. Large vehicles will deliver between 10am and 4pm 
to avoid disruption. 

The  estimated  number  of  vehicles  per  day  is  3/15  per  week.    This  number  will  reduce  once 
excavation phase of works is completed. 

Vehicles to be used are mainly HGV and delivery vehicles during the excavation period, changing to 
smaller sub contractor and delivery vehicles once excavation is complete. Dwell time to be between 
5 minutes minimum to 15mins maximum. 

Call  to  be  made  to  site  foreman  with  an  expected  time  of  arrival,  to  enable  the  site  to  be  cleared 
ready for delivery. 

No double parking will be allowed. 

It is intended that all excavated material and debris/waste will be removed by grab lorry via skips or 
spoil  boxes,  which  will  be  situated  at  the  kerbside  outside  the  front  of  the  site.    Local  Authority 
Highways permits/licences will be obtained for this purpose and any necessary fees paid.  Hoarding 
panels will be placed around the materials compound area to separate the skip/spoil box from the 
general public and to provide a small holding area for materials while they are being distributed into 
the  site.  The  hoarding  fenced  area  on  the  road  will  be  approximately  2.5  x  4.5m  in  dimension. 
Materials generally will not be stored on the open public highway. 

Refer to drawing 2140‐260 for details of hoarding layout. 

Note – Neighbours will be consulted regarding location of hoardings, and consent will be obtained 
should the location of grab lorries when stationary affect their frontage. 

It is estimated the amount of single yellow line space required directly outside the property will be 
equivalent 2no. parking bays. An appropriate application to the Highways Department will be made 
for permission to suspend required single yellow line zone in order to position grab lorry and store 
site based materials securely. 

Spoil to be removed from site by grab lorries only. 

Grab lorry movement to be limited to between the hours of 10am & 4pm. 

When the spoil removal is taking place and during unloading or loading operations, a banksman will 
be  positioned  on  the  street  to  ensure  that  the  manoeuvre  is  carried  out  safely  and  also  to  ensure 
pedestrian safety and traffic flow is maintained 

Public highway is to remain open at all times during construction. 

Concrete  will  be  mixed  within  the  boundaries  of  the  property.  There  will  be  no  truck  mounted 
concrete deliveries. 

Trade  Contractors  will  be  responsible  for  liaising  with  the  Cranbrook  Basements  Site  Manager 
regarding  all  traffic  management  associated  with  their  deliveries/works  including  relevant  liaison 
with Police, Local and Statutory Authorities.  Demobilisations from site will require the same logistics 
procedures.

to aid in cleaning away any mud if required.  All drains will be covered by a filtering membrane to 
prevent any ingress with any waste cleared. 

All  plant  and  materials  not  on  site  are  to  be  kept  within  hoarding  compound,  to  eliminate  any 
potential road issues. This will be approved by the local authority as part of our hoarding/suspension 
application. 

All  vehicles  (demolition/excavation  and  construction  vehicles)  can  approach  site  from  Princedale

Cranbrook Basements shall not allow their staff and workmen or those of their Trade Contractors to 
illegally park cars and other vehicles on Darnley Terrace.  

There  is  Pay  and  Display  parking  available  in  surrounding  roads  during  working  hours  on  a  pay  at 
meter basis.  If utilised this cost will be borne by the contractor.  

It is the responsibility of Cranbrook Basements to direct/bank and organise their deliveries in/around 
and adjacent to the site, in order that delivery to site is carried out in a safe and controlled manner.  
Cranbrook Basements will make suitable provisions in order to provide this function. 
 

The  main  vehicular  construction  site  approach  is  located  within  Darnley  Terrace.    This  area  will 
occasionally have emplaced, during normal working hours only, as the contract requires. 

Note:  Darnley  Terrace  is  not  within  a  sensitive  location  i.e.  on  a  school  route  or  high  pedestrian 
footpath area. 

It is Cranbrook Basements responsibility to inform their management, operatives, Trade Contractors 
and suppliers of the designated site access routes. 

Cranbrook  Basements  will  notify  their  suppliers  that  no  waiting  or  queuing  is  permitted  in  and 
around the site roads and deliveries are to be based on a strict just‐in‐time process (with phone call 
5‐10  minutes  prior  or  similar).    Registrations  of  repeat  offenders  will  be  taken  and  these  may  be 
refused  access  to  site.    No  vehicles  are  to  be  left  unattended.  No  stacking  of  vehicles  or  parking 
within Parking Bays whilst waiting allowed. Vehicles allowed to site when Darnley Terrace is safe & 
free from traffic. 

Cranbrook  Basements  will  liaise  with  Local  Authorities  regarding  refuse/recycling  collection  dates 
and times, in order to avoid deliveries to site during collection times.  

Cranbrook Basements must ensure that their vehicles, and those of their operatives and suppliers do 
not  cause  damage  or  nuisance  to  neighbouring  properties  and  residents  when  approaching  or 
leaving  the  site,  nor  must  they  be  parked  in  a  manner  that  may  cause  obstruction  or  nuisance  on 
site.  Any damage caused must be made good at the Trade Contractor’s cost. 

Cranbrook  Basements  shall  ensure  that  normal  vehicular  and  pedestrian  traffic  over  the  existing 
access roads and highways is not impeded. 

All  vehicle  deliveries  to  the  project  must  be  pre‐arranged  in  advance  via  the  main  office  and 
monitored  by  site  manager.    All  vehicles  delivering  to  site  are  to  have  a  pre‐arranged  time.    No 
offloading will be permitted outside these times. 

Due to the limited area available on site for the storage of materials it is imperative that a just‐in‐
time  delivery  regime  be  rigorously  enforced,  with  components  whenever  possible  being  unloaded 
and installed directly into the materials compound.  This regime means it is not necessary to provide 
a vehicle holding area. 

Cranbrook Basements can confirm that highway will not be used for any construction or demolition 
purposes. Works to be kept within the demise of the property. 

In order  to comply with Local Authority stipulations, the offloading of delivery vehicles will not  be 


able to be commenced before 8.00 a.m. and must be completed no later than 5.00 p.m.  

Information  leaflets  to  be  supplied  to  all  contractors  making  deliveries  to  site,  to  inform  them  of 
agreed route onto site, and also any on site restrictions that may apply. 

It  is  the  responsibility  of  the  Site  Manager  to  provide  and  maintain  segregation  of  the  site 
traffic/plant  and pedestrian routes into the site.  It is the responsibility of all Trade Contractors to 
liaise/co‐ordinate this requirement with the Site Manager and other Trade Contractors where trade 
contract works will affect the existing set up. 

Deliveries  not  scheduled  may  be  denied  access  to  the  site.    If  deliveries  cannot  be  immediately 
accepted  on  site  (even  if  on  the  schedule)  they  will  be  directed  away  from  site,  as  no  load  is 
permitted to wait in and around the site. 

Cranbrook  Basements  shall  provide  facilities  for  all  on‐site  materials  received.    This  is  to  include 
inspection,  off‐loading,  transportation  and  safe  keeping  of  all  construction  materials  and  plant  as 
necessary  for  their  works.    Sufficient  plant  and  materials  should  be  made  available  to  allow  quick 
loading  and  movements  of  materials.    Trade  Contractors  should  ensure  that  sufficient  thought  is 
given  to  the  method  of  unloading  deliveries  on  site  to  ensure  that  vehicles  can  be  offloaded 
promptly. 

All materials should be organised and palletised to suit lifting by either manual handling through the 
compound gates or via lorry loader crane over the hoarding and should be suitably protected from
