Transport for London (TfL) has reviewed the findings and the recommendations of the RAIB Carmont report to identify areas where it could learn and take action to ensure the continued safe operation of its services, particularly in response to climate adaptation and future extreme weather events.

The review identified a number of actions including in relation to project management assurance, design review processes and the review of key engineering standards. These actions are now being implemented by TfL’s Engineering team.
