Transport was a major feature of judging visits last week for the British Construction Industry Awards 1998. In Wales, the team looked at the A470 Pentrebach to Cefn Coed road project, which includes an elegant, all-welded composite viaduct that blends into the valleys with a pronounced vertical curve. In London, meanwhile, the cavernous excavation beneath historic railway structures, where settlement was controlled by highly sophisticated compensation grouting, was a major feature of the Jubilee Line Extension's Waterloo Station project. Entered in the BCIA for its civil engineering work, the station and its tunnel, which link up to the Northern and Bakerloo lines, is presently the scene of extensive work including installation of escalators and other E&M equipment in time for the spring 1999 opening.
