What the papers say - The Guardian

News stand

Concerns have been raised that plans to complete the £363M Transoceanic Highway linking Brazil's Amazon basin to the Pacific could damage rainforests in Brazil and Peru.

Brazil also plans to upgrade an existing dirt track between Assis and the Atlantic coast with an all-weather surface.

Stagecoach executive director Graham Eccles has said high costs could prevent South West Trains taking over vacated facilities at Waterloo when Eurostar moves its base to St Pancras in 2007, leaving the international terminal a 'white elephant'. Eccles said the cost of necessary infrastructure changes such as concrete flyovers could exceed £100M.
