Mott MacDonald Concrete Society's Award

Dig this! What do you get if you tear up 8.5 miles of countryside, trashing 358 acres of land containing three special sites of scientific interest, 10,000 trees, two civil war battle sites and then concrete the bloody lot? In the illogical, road fanatical Blighty, believe it or not, you win an award.

Environment wrecking, hard core terrorists, Mott MacDonald, the organisation responsible for this solid achievement, won the Concrete Societyís Millennium Award. As they have spread the stuff over half of China, Hong Kong and Malaysia, to name but a few, itís no wonder. In fact, the only place they havenít is a park in southern Mongolia which they donít know about yet. SchNews have concrete evidence that these stone hearted tree killers were the Newbury Bypass overall winners.We had to grit our teeth when we heard they also took away the civil engineering category and were awarded a certificate of excellence.This is obviously going to pave the way for other multi-national lovelies to grace our land.
