Sweet deal for Taylor Woodrow

TAYLOR Woodrow has clinched a 12.5 million design and construct contract for an extension to Tate & Lyles sugar handling and storage plant at Silvertown, London. The job, due for completion by April 1997, consists of an eight- storey extension, which ties into the main structure, built on to the west side of the building.

South Africa plan

SOUTH Africa is to spend more than 11 billion over the next 10 years in a massive drive to upgrade its infrastructure. The South African cabinet has approved the deal, which will include roads, water and elec-

tricity in urban areas.

A conference on how to finance the programme is due to be held next month, with South Africa banking on a mixture of private sector capital, loans from other countries, government funds and investment grants.

Princely application

THE Princes Trust is to apply for a 13 million grant from the Millennium Commission to support a national framework of study support centres.

The trust plans to establish 160 centres by 2000, co-ordinated from four university hubs in Belfast, Cardiff, Edinburgh and London.
