Bit harsh. It's over ten years ago, the firms have paid the price and also improved their governance
Same comment as Mike Paul, blame the poor contractors who have to turn dreams into reality for minimum money!!! Retired after 43 years getting kicked!
Here we go again.. Always the poor contractor who gets blamed and made out to be a useless money grabbing outfit! How about gunning for some mean clients and useless designers for a change! Do we know who took the risk on services, probably the poor contractors who had to spend over £1m each in just tendering the project in a few months and is supposed to have worked out everything in that time! Consultants probably looked at it for years and then thought 'we'll let the contractor sort this'! I'm not bitter......!
Comment on: Decision expected on Cumbria bridge rebuild
Isn't three and a half years rather a long time to take to even get to design sign off stage on this key piece of infrastructure?
Philip, as ever I entirely agree with your comments, particularly 'reverse' LDs!!!!
