Work is due to start today on a £150 million upgrade to Southampton Docks. Four new container berths are being built so that that the largest cargo ships in the world can dock there.
It's hoped the move will create 200 jobs and secure 2,000 more.
A high security hospital in Berkshire that houses some of the country's most dangerous criminals has been branded ‘not fit for purpose’ and facilities are being upgraded for patients and staff. The Department of Health is to invest £298 million in the Victorian site at Broadmoor Hospital.
Facilities at the hospital, which treats patients with some of the most challenging cases of psychiatric and mental health problems in the country, will be improved "to make sure that patients have access to the right treatment in a secure and safe environment"
The investment of £298 million follows the Commission for Health Improvement report in 2003, which concluded that “the accommodation at Broadmoor Hospital is no longer fit for the delivery of modern mental health services”.
An eleven million pound scheme to improve the Eastern Docks at Dover is due to begin in the Autumn.
Space will be created for more than two hundred freight vehicles in the hope that it will relieve congestion on roads leading to the port.
It's part of a five year plan to upgrade the docks.
