The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, commends the efforts of the UKSTT in reducing the disruption caused by roadworks by use of trenchless technologies. In the same letter, received by UKSTT Chairman Russell Fairhurst, he backs our bi-annual event, No-Dig Live:
"I greatly commend the efforts of UKSTT to support and promote innovative solutions that reduce the disruption caused by roadworks.
A major aspect of my administration has been to tackle this thorny issue and in September 2011, I released my roadworks pledge, which clearly outlines the standards that Londoners should expect from roadworks sites. One of the key principles of this pledge is to 'take up as little road/pavement space as possible with a compact working area', something that trenchless technology makes possible.
This way of working also satisfies the aim to keep London moving by ensuring works are completed as quickly as possible.
I hope that NO-DIG LIVE is a fantastic success and I would like to take this opportunity to extend my warmest good wishes to all connected with the event".
Mayor of London
