Canada Course Adding Scenic Site, England Course Set To Break Ground

BREAKING GROUND: The Heartlands Development at Whitman, England has "reached a major milestone," with work set to begin on the construction of a new privately funded M8 Junction. The new junction will provide the main access route to Heartlands, a £650M ($1B) business, retail, residential and leisure destination, providing around 4,000 new jobs. The developer, Ecosse Regeneration, has signed contracts with TransportScotland and Balfour Beatty "allowing work to begin on the site." Funded by the Royal Bank of Scotland, the new intersection will be the first full motorway junction in Scotland to be entirely privately funded. One of the "largest reclamation and regeneration projects in Europe," the Heartlands Development currently includes plans for 2,000 homes, as well as leisure, education and community facilities (GOLFBUSINESSCOMMUNITY.com, 9/23).
