Businesses put more pressure on A453 widening plan
Date: 03/01/2011

Business leaders have said more pressure should be put on the government to reverse a decision to delay widening a major trunk road.

After the government's spending review it was announced work on the A453 would not start until at least 2015.

Improvements to the route, between Junction 24 of the M1 in Leicestershire and Nottingham, have been under discussion since the early 1980s.

It is claimed the East Midlands economy could be boosted by widening the road.

The Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce said making the road a dual carriageway would benefit the region's economy by more than £320m.

Chamber of Commerce chief executive, George Cowcher, said: "We'll be working very closely with local authorities, local MPs, companies and many others who are campaigning very hard to make sure that the evidence that we've put together as a chamber of commerce to say this is the highest infrastructure priority for the whole of the East Midlands, is communicated very loudly and very clearly to London."

The A453 project was one of several major transport projects which were dropped from the government's priority list following last October's spending review.

The estimated cost of the project has been put between £141m and £194m.

According to the Highways Agency the 11-mile stretch carries about 32,000 vehicles a day.

East Midlands Airport owner agrees 280m financing
Date: 01/06/2011

The owner of East Midlands Airport has agreed a £280m five-year financing facility with seven banks. Manchester Airport Group’s (MAG) new facility replaces an existing three-year package due to expire in July 2011. Finance director Ken Duncan told Insider the facility will help support a series of investment projects. “We’re pleased to have completed the refinancing well before our existing facility ran out,” he said. “The five-year term gives us long-term stability and increased flexibility. It demonstrates that this kind of finance is available for the right businesses.” MAG is the UK’s largest British-owned airport group and serves 24 million passengers through its ownership and operation of Manchester, East Midlands, Bournemouth and Humberside airports as well as the MAG Developments property business. Barclays, the Co-operative Bank, Handelsbanken, the Royal Bank of Scotland, HSBC, Yorkshire Bank and Santander have each provided £40m. In July 2010, MAG revealed that operating profits had fallen to £56.1m in the year to 31 March 2010, down from £68.8m previously. Revenues were also 6 per cent lower at £348.9m following a 12 per cent reduction in passenger numbers to 23.9m across its four airports. Duncan said the group’s results for 2010/11 are expected to be broadly flat although the company is anticipating “marginal growth” later in the year. “Excluding the ash cloud impact, we’re tracking budget,” he said. “We’ve seen some pick up in passenger numbers although it’s very small increases. Summer is looking OK at the moment and we’d expect growth compared with last summer. “But we don’t know what the increase in taxes and VAT will have yet – that will all have an impact.”

EMAS reports unprecedented level of activity
Date: 12/30/2010

Ambulance crews in the East Midlands say they have been busier then ever before during the Christmas period.

East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) dealt with 868 Category A (life-threatening) calls on Christmas Day - a rise of 21% compared to last year.

Keith Sharpe of EMAS said a rise in flu cases and winter-related illness was behind the increase.

He said: "There has been a marked increase in flu-like illness over the Christmas period."

He added: "This is affecting resource availability and putting the whole service under increased pressure."

The public are being advised to be responsible regarding 999 calls and make full use of their GPs and walk-in centres to help ease pressure.
