Australia's New South Wales government last week approved plans for the 3.4km Lane Cove Tunnel through Sydney's northern suburbs. The tunnel will complete the final link in the city's orbital motorway network.

The Department of Transport Local Government and the Regions has released its latest edition of the New Roads & Street Works Act 1991: Safety & Street Works and Road Works - A Code of Practice.

The edition is due to come into force on 1 February 2002 and is available on www. streetworks. dtlr. gov. uk lThe Bechtel/Parsons Brinckerhoff (B/PB) joint venture project managing the Boston Artery tunnel project was this week still negotiating with the project client the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority (MTA) over whether it will be retained on the project.
