Hello! and welcome to the site.

I had heard about this. Believe you are all getting shiny new cars. How is it going to work in terms of pay, T&Cs and powers? (presume you have some now?)

Do you feel miffed about loosing the blues?

Hello and your more than welcome, will you still look after the crossing only? or will you be allowed out of the gloom of the bores and off that airbourne road to somewhere the ground is firm.

pay, current shift pattern,and area of operation stays the same at phase one, then gradually train us to work on the wider network as you guys. Not too much detail yet as we,ve only had one presentation from senior HA Ops people and that was all HR stuff. Long term plan is that ALL HATO,S at Dartford will work M25 and the crossing stuff ie: escorting hazardous loads and abnormal loads through the crossing area.So the S.E Hato,s at Dartford HA outstation currently will be getting trained to work the crossing roles! WHEN the dust has settled we will have one massive S.E Outstation.
Losing the " blues " not a major trauma, we never had the traffic exemptions anyway. Could,nt exceed speed limits or ignore red lights. Purely so people knew we were there.

Welcome to the site, glad to have you on here :sltm:

It's very true that xHx is our random waver and resident window licker... She's a bit speshul, but that's why we like her so much :slcud:

MerlotMavis is, well, MerlotMavis. Mostly harmless unless she's confronted with a truck full of firemen, Squaddies, or Pongolad. Then she tends to go a bit gooey :slbe:
Just say NO to user bars!!!!!

A dangerous question, but can we ask how much you are paid, and what your T&C's are? If you don't feel comfortable replying on here, please PM me.

It's all true what jezza says, though still waiting for xHx to head up north and lick my windows :sleye: As for MM, she's just a sucker for men in uniform carrying a bottle of red :slshh:
