Thameslink 2000 may be finished by...2020?
We really can't do anything, can we. Richard Rogers wins the Stirling Prize for a foreign airport that took about 2 days to build in comparison to the Jurassic timescale of Heathrow T5, and Thameslink 2000 has finally taken a step out of the blocks only six years after it was meant to be finished.

The £3.5 billion congestion-easing rail scheme moved a step closer as the Government announced that it was giving planning permission and granting legal powers to Network Rail (NR) for the Thameslink 2000 project. However, Transport Minister Stephen Ladyman stressed that this did not amount to a final go-ahead for the scheme as the DfT was still considering the question of funding.

Talk about giving with one hand, taking with the other. Well, at least that means that at my Borough Market office, we still won't have to move out for a good long while yet.
