TfL Security standard for construction works – design and implementation
|Publication Date:||1 March 2021|
This standard covers all TfL modes and applies to sponsors, project managers, architects, engineers and security managers engaged in the design and construction of all new or altered assets within the TfL network.
This standard shall be used to mitigate the effects of crime and disorder in or around the TfL premises at design and installation stages of projects and maintenance works.
The security aspects of a project are part of the projects scope. It is the responsibility of the sponsor to obtain sufficient funds to cover the security and to instigate them.
Note: Minor projects may not have a definite need to comply with this standard, but the requirement to comply with Section 17 of the Crime & Disorder Act encompasses all of TfL's undertakings. It is therefore essential that minor projects undergo a Section 17 assessment by the Crime Reduction & Operational Security Team to ensure that our statutory duties are met and so that a recorded decision can be made regarding the application of this standard to the individual project being considered.
The Crime Reduction & Operational Security Team can be contacted on:
The security of the construction site is the responsibility of the contractor who should take due regard for the Secured by Design guidance document, Construction Site Security Guide current at the time.
This standard sets out the security criteria for the design and installation of TfL premises in order to meet our obligations under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
LU Projects shall follow the requirements of the current edition of Security in Designs of Stations (SIDOS) published jointly by Department for Transport (DfT), the British Transport Police (BTP) and the Centre for Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI). SIDOS should be read in conjunction with this standard for definition of the roles played by persons described in the guidance. SIDOS is available here and must be used as the general framework within which station security is developed.
