An Employment Tribunal


An Employment Tribunal has rejected Railtrack's appeal against an HM Railway Inspectorate prohibition notice served on signal SN109 at Ladbroke Grove.

London's Millennium Wheel is set to start turning for previews and invited guests on 1 February. Faulty clutches were replaced on all 32 capsules last week, with testing and commissioning well in hand. The formal gala opening to start public rides is scheduled for early March. Out of tolerance machining by the German clutch supplier has been blamed for the delay.

The Highways Agency confirmed the final cost of constructing the M60 Outer Ring Road Contract 4 as £30M, way above joint venture contractor Amec/Alfred McAlpine's original tender price of £18.2M. Agency chief executive Peter Nutt told MPs: 'It is not always possible to identify in advance all the necessary work nor the precise nature of the ground.'
