Types of Plant

The scope of this standard covers all portable and transportable non-railborne plant including attachments and inspection and measuring equipment but excluding:-

a) any static equipment which forms part of the fixed infrastructure or railway support facilities such as fixed depot plant.

b) basic hand / electrically powered hand tools that have not been designed or adapted for use on a railway.

The types of non-railborne plant covered by this standard are;

a) plant with no drive mechanisms

b) plant with manually driven mechanisms

c) plant with power driven mechanisms

This standard applies to;

a) all non-railborne plant that has been designed or adapted specifically for use in a railway environment

b) certain aspects of non-railborne plant that has not been designed or adapted specifically for use in a railway environment;

i. where the design of these aspects assumes an additional safety relevance when used in a railway environment.

As such, the requirements defined in this standard are separated into;

a) those applicable to particular types of non-railborne plant

b) those applicable to non-railborne plant that performs a specific function or is intended for use in a defined environment.

Engineering Requirements

The scope of the engineering requirements for non-railborne plant covered by this standard includes design, construction and operating/maintenance instructions.

The scope of this standard does not include the requirements for the performance of the working function of non-railborne plant in terms or output rate or quality. The expectation is that these requirements will be set out in the technical requirements specifications used for the acquisition of the plant.

Area of Application

The requirements in this standard apply to all of the LU infrastructure as defined in Section 14 of this standard but excluding the interior of enclosed premises that are not accessible to Transport for London's (TfL) customers and to fully enclosed worksites and construction sites that are located away from the track and separated from the track by a physical barrier which is clear of the structure profile and sufficiently extensive and robust to prevent plant interfering with the safe operation of the railway.

Purpose

The purpose of this standard is to define the engineering requirements for nonrailborne plant designed or adapted for railway use and also for other non-railborne plant intended for use in locations or circumstances where particular risks must be managed and there is requirement for verification of conformity with these engineering requirements.

This document must be read in conjunction with the associated guidance document G0174.
