Stabilisation work on the Combe Down mines beneath Bath is set to cost £90M, according to the latest draft estimates. Scott Wilson is consultant for the project which will fill the mines with foamed concrete, marine sand and crushed limestone. A contractor will be appointed shortly. The project will be funded through English Partnerships' land stabilisation scheme (NCE 25 July 2002) .

Amec this week completed the tunnel breakthrough for a 2.85m diameter, 3.3km long segmental lined sewage tunnel linking High Wycombe's sewerage system with a new treatment works in Little Marlow.

The tunnel is part of a £42M project for Thames Water and is on schedule for completion in July (NCE 22 May 2003).

Planning permission was granted this week for construction of a 217m tall, steel framed, glass clad office block in the City of London.

Developer Minerva is to begin the tendering process and hopes to start construction on the 50-storey building early next year.
