RE: The TImes .... Chinese to bid for UK construction firm17 Feb 2020 09:54
Ditto on link, however imo more realistic is consoliation in sector via UK players. Serco after having been rebuffed last year or so by bab**** maybe one? Albeit there market emphasis a bit different to Kier.
Really, after being awarded contracts as stated on Eiffage-Kier jv website? Let's see how much crap will come out from the legal fall out and compensation. BJ will be left in tatters. Anyway it's press scaremongering, Kier is not just dependent on HS2 but has been awared huge contracts throughout UK, just look at their website and RNS'. Looks like the shorts are falling overthemselves to take cover. The amount of work already gone in will delay this and cause a huge overspend and hang if the is gets switched along with loss of Jobs and credibility for the UK, not least of all BJ in a hugely critical brexit smootheover period. Ludicrous posts here on drops.
From their website and note also how much they have invested community projects.
Eiffage Kier is proud to have been appointed by HS2 to deliver civil engineering works across an 80km section of the new high speed rail link between the Chiltern Tunnel and Long Itchington Wood. Our scope of the works includes 17 viaducts, 5km of green tunnels, 22km of road diversions, 75 overbridges and 24 million cubic metres of excavation.
Good post, do they really think that after the turmoil innthe sector and subsequent re-emplyment of staff that Boris will allow this to go outside. We have probably better expertise here, it's just not about speed and costs. There's a level of assurance you'll get from UK companies that you cannot get otherwise.
Gold is becoming more valuable, so bear that in mind and ggp have large strike ranges with strong grades. All been Rns'd whats intriguing is the drill results yet to be released. In the meantime sp is dilly dally but crucial for a good entry/re-entry/top up depending on your circumstances. Looking at the way the sp is behaving and the charts, I'm holding back and in hindsight done well with banking a small profit and cannot now lose on this.
