This month our magazine focuses on the important links that are being made across the UK.
Crossrail is a landmark project that is currently shaping the future of transport in the nation’s capital. As Europe’s largest civil engineering tunnel project, Crossrail is the most significant transportation development since the construction of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link. When it is completed in 2018, the service will connect routes throughout London and dramatically reduce congestion.
Further transport links include the improvements being made to the A19 carriageway from Dishforth to Tyne Tunnel and the new, fully operational New Tyne Crossing.
Links are also being made in our communities. The new Chestnut Grange care home in Burton upon Trent will ensure 24/7 care for the elderly community whilst providing exciting facilities such as a hairdressing salon and an IT suite. Over in Edinburgh, the £37 million refurbishment of the Royal Commonwealth Pool will allow the facility to host the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
International links are being made through the construction of hotels across the UK. In 2014, global chain Hotel Indigo will celebrate the opening of a new hotel in Newcastle. Internationally renowned developers Arora Hotels are also celebrating the recent completion of a new Premier Inn hotel at Heathrow Airport.
In Belfast, linking the past to the future has facilitated the creation of a new state-of-the-art college complex. The €44 million Belfast Metropolitan College Titanic Quarter Campus is located on the site where the infamous ship was built and will now invigorate and encourage students as they learn and develop skills that can be transferred to their everyday lives.
We now invite you, readers, to join us as we celebrate the projects that will link our future together.
