Hi - a reverse request. I work for Network Rail as a manager looking after the HS1 line near to M20. On Friday 12th March 2021 a report was received from HE M20 Patrol vehicle that there was a fallen tree close to the railway and on HS1 property and had damaged fencing. We initiated emergency train speed restrictions and headed to site. The tree was nowhere near the railway property and the damage was to a highways owned gate. Please could we establish a line of communication with the lead engineer to establish clear ownership responsibility and reporting protocols to prevent future incidents which result in losses to us without any risks being present. of course we would always welcome reports of concerns and the HE vigilance is appreciated.
