Dear Mr Smith

 

TfL Ref: FOI-2841-2122

 

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 14
March 2022, asking for the asbestos report for Hillingdon Station.

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Environmental Information Regulations and our information access
policy. I can confirm that we hold the information you require.

 

Please find a copy of the report attached.

 

As part of the road widening scheme of the A40 at Hillingdon Circus, the
original station at Hillingdon was demolished and a new one was built to
the south which was opened in December 1992. Although the construction was
undertaken before the ban on the use of asbestos containing materials in
1999, by then, the use of asbestos in construction had already
declined. London Underground had been actively removing asbestos since the
late 1970’s or early 80’s

 

We manage asbestos in accordance with the Health and Safety Executive’s
Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 regulations. Where asbestos is found
and it is appropriate to do so, it is London Underground’s policy to
continue to safely manage asbestos containing materials in-situ, through
continued management surveys, re-inspections, risk assessments and
pre-work refurbishment & demolition surveys.

 

We carry out airborne fibre monitoring for asbestos as reassurance during
work on or near to asbestos containing materials, to ensure levels and
content of dust do not pose a risk to the health of our customers or
employees. 

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely
