Troubled support services company Jarvis is considering changing its name. The contractor, which has debts of £380M, hopes to escape association with a series of disasters including the Potters Bar rail crash in 2002 and various loss-making PFI contracts.
London City airport is to invest £40M over the next five years to accommodate a rise in passenger numbers from 1.9M to 3.5M. The expansion includes an extended terminal building and extra aircraft parking space. A surface station at the terminal entrance will connect the airport to the new £130M Docklands Light Railway extension, due to open in December.
