Metro Tunnel

Travel advice for workplaces

Every organisation is unique and may be affected by the construction of the Metro Tunnel in different ways.

While the new tunnels and stations are built, road and public transport networks will be busier than normal and that could have an impact on four key areas of your workplace:

  • staff travel to and from the workplace.
  • business travel.
  • travel for your customers or other visitors.
  • deliveries, collections and supplier access.

We can help you prepare for upcoming changes by:

  • producing fact sheets on promoting public transport, cycling and walking at your workplace.

Developing a Travel Action Plan

A Travel Action Plan is a package of sustainable travel initiatives tailored to suit an organisation so they can manage the transport needs of staff, visitors, patients, students and/or suppliers during Metro Tunnel construction.

Developing a tailored Travel Action Plan will help your organisation plan ahead for transport impacts.

Every organisation's plan will be different. However, all plans will contain a mix of sustainable options that enable people to travel safely and efficiently to and from your workplace.

Senior management leadership and support for your Travel Action Plan is important and will allow your workplace to better deliver travel solutions.

There is a range of travel options and initiatives your workplace can adopt to make travel easier during Metro Tunnel construction and help you plan ahead for transport impacts.

Support for hospitals

Building the Metro Tunnel may mean hospitals need to change the way their staff, patients, visitors and suppliers travel to avoid and minimise delays.

This guide focuses on the ways we can help keep your hospital moving while major construction is underway.

Support for schools and universities

RPV has a range of resources for schools and universities to assist them in supporting their employees, students and visitors make journeys during Metro Tunnel construction.
