Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation


Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation has appointed Mott MacDonald's Hong Kong practice, Mott Connell, to design and supervise construction of Lok Ma Chau rail terminus in Hong Kong.

British Earthquake Consortium, comprising Balfour Beatty, Bovis Lend Lease, Hyder Consulting, John Laing International, Ove Arup and Thames Water, will begin detailed work on preparing a Reconstruction Implementation Plan for Yalova - one of the Turkish cities worst affected by last year's earthquake. Fifty per cent of the cost of the work will be met by the UK Department of the Environment Transport and the Regions.

Surface deterioration on minor roads could be avoided by the addition of concrete roadside border strips, according to the British In-situ Concrete Paving Association. The borders would prevent the 'squeezing out' of asphalt onto verges resulting from traffic growth and increasing axle loads.

Automatic Warning Systems protect 3,926km of railway in Scotland. The system will be fitted to a further 229km of track on the Ayr-Stranraer and Aberdeen-Inverness routes later this year. A Train Protection Warning System will be fitted to 1,424 signals and 88 buffer stops by 2003.
