The London Assembly Environment Committee has recently launched an investigation looking at the management of railway embankments.
Last week I joined the Committee in a visit to Grange Park to view the railway embankment. Network Rail were also in attendance. I’m very glad that they paid us a visit. They promised to learn from the Grange Park situation and most importantly they recognised the need to improve on their communication and public consultation efforts. Hopefully the London Assembly investigation into will produce some recommendations which will help change the way these ‘vegetation management’ programmes are conducted in future.
