Fire Risk Audits

Following the fire in a scrap yard beneath the M1 in April 2011 the Secretary of State for Transport requested that the Highways Agency and Newtork Rail each carry out an audit of potential risks to their networks from properties below or adjacent to roads or railways. These reports are now public and available from the links below:
