Human error has been blamed for the partial collapse of a bridge under construction in Java, Indonesia. One worker was killed and seven injured when six 40m long, 80t concrete slabs collapsed last Tuesday.

The Ministry of Resettlement & Regional Infrastructure found the cause to be failure to position the sixth slab correctly. It was also found that only 27 of the 35 steel masts required to support the slabs were in place. The £100M bridge will be over 5km long when completed in 2007, linking Java's second city Surabaya with Madura island.

Mowlem-led Ravensbourne Health Services is to carry out a £285M 30-year contract with Lewisham Hospital Trust for capital works and services at University Hospital Lewisham.

The PFI scheme begins with a two year £60M capital programme.
