UK government contemplates sale of LCR assets and Eurostar stake

first_imgUK: The possibility of the UK government selling London & Continental Railways’ property assets and its stake in Eurostar International Ltd is raised in the National Infrastructure Plan 2013 published by the Treasury on December 4.Currently wholly-owned by the Department for Transport, LCR is included in the assets which the government has identified as offering the potential for sale in 2014-20, subject to ‘value for money assessments and key policy objectives’. LCR has a 40% shareholding in Eurostar, with France’s state-owned train operator SNCF holding a 55% stake and its Belgian counterpart SNCB the remaining 5%. A Eurostar spokesman told Railway Gazette International that the sale would be a matter for the government as shareholder, and day-to-day operations would continue as normal. LCR was established as a private consortium which in 1996 was selected by the government to build and operate the Channel Tunnel Rail Link, now known as High Speed 1, and to manage the UK’s stake in Eurostar. A government rescue package was needed in 1998, and LCR was purchased by the state for a nominal sum in June 2009. In November 2010 LCR let a 30-year concession to manage HS1 to a consortium of Borealis Infrastructure and the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan for £2·1bn. On September 30 2013 LCR took over 15 staff and a number of properties with future development potential from BRB (Residuary) Ltd, the body which had been formed to manage the remaining property, rights and liabilities of the abolished British Railways Board. LCR is now responsible for properties including Waterloo International station and the former Eurostar depot in west London, office accommodation in Croydon, Derby, Manchester and Birmingham and potential development sites including land in Oxford and Leeds. Other BRB(R) assets were transferred to the Highways Agency, Network Rail and the Department for Transport. The government has also said it will provide a further £50m for a full redevelopment of Gatwick Airport station, ‘subject to satisfactory commercial negotiations with the airport’, and has confirmed that a £1bn state guarantee has now been agreed for the extension of London Underground’s Northern Line to Battersea.last_img read more

Photo/Leo ValdezAnd they didn’t. The state-ranked Norse remained calm, turned on their amazing scoring machine, and rallied for a 9-4 victory over the Vikings on their home field.Leading the way was Sophie Mueller with a four-goal performance while Gwenna Pitts added three.The Norse claimed their fourth straight conference title, and sealed up a perfect 40-0 career conference record for the five seniors on the squad – Kendal Hoops, Alya Pitts, Grace Berends, Abby Grevel and Reyna Johnson.“It was a good test for us to get down and battle back,” Grevel said. “It’s a good test for the postseason.”“There always pressure to keep it going,” said Hoops. “Once you get to be the best, everyone is coming for you.”North Muskegon improved to 16-2 overall on the season and 10-0 in conference play. Whitehall fell to 14-3 overall and 7-2 in the conference.Whitehall, a talented team in its own right, definitely gave North Muskegon something to think about.Grace Vanderwoude races for the ball against Whitehall’s No. 16 Lexus Bilek. Photo/Leo ValdezThe Vikings stunned the home crowd 10 minutes into the game when Kacey Jeffries raced down the far sideline past defenders and sent a perfect centering pass to Maggie Evans, who nailed the ball into the top right corner of the net to give her team a 1-0 lead.But the Norse didn’t seem affected by the deficit at all, controlling the action in Whitehall’s’ end for the next six minutes.Finally, Hope Johnson’s centering pass found Mueller, who fired the ball low and left to tie the game at 1-1 with 23:44 remaining in the first half.North Muskegon scored the game’s next three goals, with Mueller making it 2-1 with 18:11 left in the half, Hope Johnson scoring on a penalty kick with 8:49 remaining, and Mueller scoring again with 6:07 left.Jeffries scored for Whitehall about a minute later, and North Muskegon led 4-2 at halftime.The Norse maintained the pressure in the second half, generating four shots on net in the first three minutes, and eventually scoring the next four goals.Sophie Mueller leads the fast break for North Muskegon. Photo/Leo ValdezMueller netted her fourth goal of the game on a penalty kick four minutes into the half, and Gwenna Pitts scored the next three goals in a span of 16 minutes to put NM up 8-2.“We talked at half about being more multidimensional and moving the ball around more,” said North Muskegon Coach Ryan Berends. “When we do that, good things happen.”Evans scored her second goal for Whitehall with 9:06 left in the game to cut the deficit to 8-3, and Emma Thompson scored on a penalty kick three minutes later to make it 8-4.Grace Berends finished off the scoring for the Norse with 1:48 left, helping send her and her fellow seniors out with a perfect conference record.“It’s really unique from other teams,” the Norse midfielder said. “We’re really close as a team. It’s an incredible bond.”North Muskegon finished the game with a 19-9 shot advantage.Norse goalie Syann Fairfield had five saves, Hope Johnson finished with three assists, and Emily Judd and Ren Pastor added single assists.Goalkeeper Sadie VanGuilder stopped 10 shots for the Vikings, and Thompson finished with two assists.
