Dispute over Victorian Metro Melbourne
Large firms that have stopped working on the underground rail tunnel, which costs $11 billion in Melbourne might miss other major infrastructure projects in Victoria. The government and Prime Minister warned the consortium that they could also be in court to implement the arrangement they signed for the construction of the subway. According to the union, about forty workers from the tunneling project were sent to John Holland for “training” over the next few weeks. When they return to work is unknown.
The consortium stopped two boring cars some days ago as a conflict over costs escalated. The Prime Minister adds that the government conducts specific tender processes, but any tender, of course, is looking for firms that have a track record of definite deliveries, not necessarily a track record of an adequately clear tactical game.

The state water plan for 2017 for level 3, which defines the use of water in the open air, will be either limited or completely limited.
The total water storage in Sydney was reduced to 44.8%, which is almost 2% less than on November 17. Given the rapid rate of decline in dam levels, the government decided to introduce restrictions of the next level earlier than planned, said the Prime Minister.
At current supply levels, Sydney is likely to run out of water even for 1.5 years, provided there is no rain. The Bureau of Meteorology predicts a drier than usual summer for the state. In 2016, the government considered proposals to increase the height of the dam wall, an important catchment in the state, to prevent it from overflowing.
Fines of $ 220 will be charged to residents abiding by restrictions. Companies that use outdoor water must apply for exemption.

Павел Гущин, ученик пятого класса, возвращался из школы домой, когда увидел, как маленькая девочка падает по льду на канал Матисова в Санкт-Петербурге. Павел бросился помогать призывать взрослых. Проходящие мимо люди слышали его плач и подняли девушку из воды. Мальчик помог им отнести ее в ближайший торговый центр.
"У меня есть сестра того же возраста, такого же веса. На ней была примерно одинаковая одежда, только кепка была другой. Я так испугался, что это могла быть моя сестра", - вспоминает Павел.
Он говорит, что сам бы прыгнул в воду, если бы вокруг не было взрослых. Павел занимается яхтингом. Он уже три года тренируется, участвует в международных регатах и не боится воды. И он не думает, что он действовал как герой.
"Я не думаю, что это было так здорово. Потому что, действительно, если кому-то нужна помощь, каждый нормальный человек должен делать то же самое", - говорит Павел.
Недавно Всероссийским обществом спасения водных ресурсов Павлом был вручен почетный знак "За отвагу и энергию".
Кстати, с 15 ноября по 15 января в Санкт-Петербурге запрещено гулять по льду, а тем, кто гуляет по рекам и каналам города, грозит штраф.
