In Thomas Coughlin’s analysis of the derailing of the government’s light rail plans this stood out:
. . .Evans gave a stark warning to the Government, saying that the messed-up process could stop firms from bidding for other government projects in future, making it even more difficult for the Government to plug it’s infrastructure gap. . .
Paul Evans is the chief executive of the Association of Consulting Engineers.
His view is yet another example of how this government is derailing business confidence.
Firms have wasted time and large amounts of money on this project and having been bitten so badly will be shy about bidding for others.
Meanwhile all of us are paying more for fuel by way of increased tax for a project that looks like it was never on the right track from the start.
