Contractors who failed to to maintain new trees made to return costs

Transport for London has taken action to recover costs against contractors who failed to water newly planted trees along an A-road in outer east London.

The trees were planted along the central reservation of the A127 and A12 in the borough of Havering, but many appear to have since died due to not being adequately watered.

A TfL representative said: "The contractor responsible for the planting of the trees did not undertake sufficient watering during their establishment. Action has been taken against the contractor and all costs have been recovered."
