Hochtief Brought In For Crossrail Station Construction Work

The title of this post is the same as that of this article on Building.

This is the first two paragraphs.

Hochtief has been handed a £40m contract to carry out improvement works at three stations in west London that will be part of the Crossrail route when it opens.

In a deal published to the Official Journal, the German contractor has been chosen to carry out improvement work at Hayes and Harlington, Southall and West Drayton stations.

The article then goes on to give a detailed report oif the state of the Crossrail stations in the central section.

In the article, the new Crossrail boss; Mark Wild was also very forthcoming about the line’s problem.

My Project Management experience, says to me, that the standard of planning and reporting on the project wasn’t of the best.

When Are We Going To Get Some Rain?

It’s now over a month since I experienced any rain and I feel totally crap, with a very dry month and I suspect dry lungs as well.

I drinking lots of 0.5% alcohol beer, tea and lemonade, but it all seems to make no difference!

I need a right royal downpour, so I can walk around in it.
