Covilhã — Guarda reopening moves closer

first_imgPORTUGAL: Minister of Planning & Infrastructure Pedro Marques and European Transport Commissioner Violeta Bulc participated in a ceremony on March 5 to mark the official start of work to upgrade the 46∙5 km Covilhã — Guarda route, closed to traffic since 2009.With 10 km already completed by Infraestruturas de Portugal, under a contract worth €51∙9m a joint venture of Ramalho Rosa Cobetar and Conduril is to undertake track renewals on 36 km and refurbish six bridges. The route is to be electrified at 25 kV 50 Hz and equipped with GSM-R, with automatic level crossing equipment to be installed at 18 locations and one level crossing abolished.The work forms part of the North International Corridor project, running from Pampilhosa on the Lisboa — Porto main line to Vilar Formoso on the Spanish border. It aims to double freight capacity from 14 to 25 trains/day, while increasing train lengths from 500 m to 750 m. A total of eight level crossings are being abolished and the route resignalled with ETCS Level 2.The Covilhã — Guarda component includes the construction of 1∙5 km of single track to provide an east to west connection between the Beira Alta and Beira Baixa routes, avoiding the need for train to reverse at Guarda. This will provide a diversionary route for international services during the corridor upgrade.The reopening programme is costing a total of €77m, of which the European Union is providing €61m and the Portuguese government €16m. Both the North and South international corridors from part of the Ferrovia 2020 plan to upgrade 1 200 km at a cost of €2bn. According to Infraestruturas de Portugal, the value of work in progress or being tendered has increased from €46m in the first half of 2016 to €655m in the first half of 2018, with €102m or 5% of the Ferrovia 2020 total to be completed by the end of this year.last_img read more

UK helps RSS tackle serious crime and corruption

first_imgColleen Wainwright (left) and Grantley Watson after signing the Memorandum of UnderstandingThe RSS and UK have joined forces to set up an Asset Recovery Unit which will tackle serious organised crime and corruption. The Asset Recovery Unit will be based at the RSS headquarters at Paragon, Christ Church and will support the RSS in building sustainable regional capacity in asset recovery.The Unit is being funded by the UK’s development agency, the Department for International Development (DFID), which has committed £2.4 m as part of its £17m Anti-Corruption Programme for the region.A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) setting out the agreement between the RSS and DFID was signed on 19 November by Grantley Watson, Executive Director of the RSS, and Colleen Wainwright, Head of DFID Caribbean.Grantley Watson said: ‘Our region is negatively impacted by violence arising from drug trafficking. The Asset Recovery Unit will help countries confiscate criminals’ assets, reducing their influence and power.’Colleen Wainwright said, ‘The UK recognises the importance of security and the rule of law in helping the countries of the region to develop.’The Unit, which opens on 1 December, will take over from the DFID-funded Caribbean Criminal Assets Recovery Programme (CCARP), based within the British High Commission, which has been engaged in raising the capacity and capability of practitioners, at all levels – financial investigators, prosecutors, magistrates and judges, by providing them with the knowledge and skills to recover the assets from those engaged in serious crimes. The Asset Recovery Unit will continue CCARP’s work of promoting and strengthening legislation throughout the region to tackle the proceeds of crime. It will lobby for the establishment of a dedicated forfeiture fund to provide additional resources for law enforcement agencies, for the criminal justice system, for victim compensation and for community projects keeping youngsters off the streets. 106 Views   no discussions Share InternationalNewsPrintRegional UK helps RSS tackle serious crime and corruption by: – November 20, 2015 Sharing is caring!center_img Share Tweet Sharelast_img read more

Pakistan takes home Q-Mobile Cup Trophy after 2-1 series win

first_img Sharing is caring! LocalNewsSports Pakistan takes home Q-Mobile Cup Trophy after 2-1 series win by: Dominica Vibes News – May 15, 2017 164 Views   no discussions Share Tweetcenter_img Share Share © WICB MediaThe Pakistani team has made history by winning their first test series in the West Indies after Yasir Shah took a five wicket haul to win the final test in the Windsor Park Stadium on Sunday, May 14th, 2017, winning the three-match series two games to one. The game was heading towards a draw after Man-of-the-Match, Roston Chase, steadied the West Indies innings after a top order collapse, scoring a patient one hundred and one (101) runs to slowly draw the game and ultimately the series. However, the draw was not to be as Chase could not find a partner to steady the other end, with wickets continuously falling at the opposite end. Still there was a ray of hope when Shannon Gabriel and Roston Chase put on a rocky partnership bringing the game down to the last few overs. With seven balls remaining before the game ended a draw was expected, before Gabriel, who had previously faced twenty dot balls, went for what many described as ‘a rash and unnecessary’ shot, when he was bowled of the final ball of the penultimate over, giving Yasir Shah his fifth wicket and Pakistan the game and the series. Captain of the West Indies team, Jason Holder stated during the post-match presentation that he was proud of the team and the way that they played. He noted that he thinks the team is improving considering it is a team of young players, and congratulated the retiring Pakistani batsman on what he referred to as outstanding careers. “I think we are heading in the right direction,” he said. “We are coming up against good teams. Pakistan were No. 1 not too long ago. We need to learn to seize crucial moments. I said to the guys that I was extremely proud of the way we fought. Lot of room for improvement. We had faith in our batting. Chase was outstanding, Gabriel too. Myself and Joseph chipped in as well. Credit to the Pakistanis. Want to congratulate Misbah and Younis for their outstanding careers. You’ve been ambassadors for world cricket,” he noted. Chase, who was awarded man of the match for his hundred and seventy (170) runs and five wickets in the match, stated that he was just trying to save a game. “Just basically was trying to save the Test. I just say what you learn, practice it and fight hard. It is a learning experience. We fought hard and I thought it was a good effort by the guys. I had a good series but it wasn’t good enough in the end. Hopefully, we can be on the winning side next time,” he noted. The win however was a bittersweet one, as it was the final test match for two Pakistani cricket greats, Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan who officially retired after their win. Misbah stated that he was very proud of how his team played, especially in these conditions. He noted that while his team was under pressure, they really wanted the win, which encouraged them to work hard and do their best to secure the win. He went on to say that he is thankful for the chance that he had to play and represent his country, and wished Younis Khan the best of luck.Chase ended the series as the leading run scorer with four hundred and three (403) runs, including two hundreds at an average 100.75, while Yasir Shah ended as the leading wicket taker, and man of the series, with twenty-five wickets at an economy rate of 2.92.last_img read more
