All six of the new platforms at the original track level have been available since the end of September, but SNCB’s project team used the time until the timetable change to make a few final adjustments.The inside of the 100-year old trainshed has been completely transformed. Gone are the original 10 platform tracks, now there are three platforms supported on a stylish viaduct structure on each side of a deep light well leading down to low-level platforms. At ground level work will start by mid-2004 on fitting out a new shopping precinct which will open in 2006. Below that will be four more terminal platforms at Level -1. Finally, at Level -2, 18m below ground, will be the four through platforms leading into the double-track cross-city tunnel. Launched in May 1998, the cross-city project has the twin objectives of shortening the route to the north and increasing capacity at Antwerpen Centraal. Total length of the link is 3·8 km, from the southern approach ramps near Berchem to the junction with the existing northern line at Dam Square. Total cost is put at €755m, of which reconstruction of Antwerpen Centraal accounts for around €300m.The new platforms at the terminus are around 400m long, and are expected to lift capacity from 30000 to 60000 passengers a day. To handle these extra passengers, a second station entrance is being built in Lange Kievitstraat at the outer end. This will be linked to the historic station building via the pedestrian shopping mall, and will form a catalyst for the city’s related programme to renew much of the run-down area east of the railway.Construction of the new platform supports inside the station was done in two phases, with a switch-over in June 2001. Only when the basic shell was completed in mid-2003 could work start on digging out the well for the deep-level platforms. In parallel with this work, an 80m long approach tunnel was dug from Astrid Square under the historic station building, which was supported on a compensation-grouted concrete raft to prevent subsidence.The heart of the cross-city link is a pair of 1200m single-track bores with an internal diameter of 7·3m. These were dug by TBM southwards from a worksite at Viséstraat to Astrid Square. The first was excavated between September 2002 and February 2003, after which the TBM was backed out and fitted with a new cutter head to dig the second bore in May to September 2003. The cut-and-cover section under Astrid Square will be completed in 2004-05.The tunnel will have evacuation shafts at each end, and one in the middle, with cross-passages at 300m intervals. North of Viséstraat the line will rise in cut-and-cover tunnel through Dam Square to meet the existing line just north of the former Antwerpen Dam station. There is a large area of railway land around the junction, including former workshops, which is to be redeveloped as a park and sports area with provision for shops and housing under a separate city project known as Spoor Nord.The two new tracks will parallel the existing passenger and freight lines for around 1500m across the Albert Canal to Antwerpen Luchtbal, where a new six-platform station is taking shape to act as a public transport interchange for the northern suburbs. Trains have been calling at the completed platforms since September, but it will be another three years before the buildings are ready.In 2002 SNCB remodelled Berchem station to provide a similar interchange to the south. The city is now opening up a ‘green square’ to link the station with the nearby tram and bus stops. Considerable provision is being made for park-and-ride, with 400 spaces at Berchem and further parking space at Luchtbal. Two underground car parks at Centraal will provide 600 and 400 spaces, and remodelling of Astrid Square will eliminate all car traffic to create a pedestrian oasis, with the green space flanked by tram and bus terminals. New underground passages will link the main station with the nearby Astrid and Diamant premetro stations to give a comprehensive interchange. High speed line northNorth of Antwerpen Luchtbal, the north-south junction line and existing routes will meet in a complex of dive-under junctions which will segregate traffic to the docks, the existing line to Roosendaal and the new high speed line to the Netherlands.On course for completion by the end of 2006, the new line proper starts at Havanastraat, and runs 35·2 km to the Dutch border south of Breda. Costed at €684m, the line is being co-financed by the Dutch government as part of the HSL-Zuid package. For much of its length, the Belgian line parallels the E19 motorway, requiring adjustments to 20 road bridges. The line is to be flanked on one side by noise barriers and on the other by a safety berm to avoid the risk of road vehicles straying onto the tracks.To minimise land-take through the environmentally-sensitive Peerdsbos forest, a 3·2 km section is being enclosed in a concrete tunnel at a cost of €22·8m. The 17m wide structure has 12 emergency exits and large pressure-relief openings along the motorway side. To be masked in future by planting of shrubs, it will serve as a barrier to reduce the ambient motorway noise by around 10db(A). The roofed structure will also avoid any risk of trees falling on the line as a result of severe weather.Over €60m has been allocated for other environmental measures, including 6·6 km of noise barriers, 24ha of compensatory forestry, five animal culverts under the line, and a 200m long ‘ecoduct’ providing a green swathe across both the railway and motorway.There will be one intermediate station on the Belgian section, serving a park-and-ride and public transport interchange at Brecht. With separate platform loops flanking the fast lines, it will be served by fast IR trains offering a 15min journey to both Antwerpen and Breda. Acting as a railhead for the surrounding area, Brecht is expected to attract around 1 000 passengers a day.Completion of HSL-Zuid will reduce the journey time for the 166 km from Antwerpen Centraal to Amsterdam to 1h 7min, compared with 2h 1min from Berchem today. Antwerpen – Rotterdam will come down from 1h 3min to just 31min for the 95 km.last_img read more

first_imgBy DINA ARÉVALOPort Isabel-South Padre [email protected] Isabel City Secretary Susie Alcocer has filed a lawsuit in the 103rd State District Court against the City, alleging she has been the victim of age discrimination and retaliation. According to a copy of the petition obtained by the PRESS, Alcocer is seeking between $200,000 and $1 million in damages and attorney’s fees.The suit comes after the Civil Rights Division of the Texas Workforce Commission (TWC) took no action on an age discrimination complaint Alcocer, 55, filed against the City late last year.The discrimination allegation stems from a $3-per-hour reduction of Alcocer’s pay, which took effect at the start of the new fiscal year on Oct. 1, 2015. Since the complaint was first filed, Alcocer has alleged the pay reduction is part of a larger trend by the City of discriminating against older employees.While Alcocer’s pay was reduced, the pay of Assistant City Secretary Nadini P. Jee was increased by a rate of $5 per hour. Wage increases were also approved by the City Commission for a number of the City’s lowest wage earners. In her suit, Alcocer states this, combined with the termination of former City Manager Edward P. Meza, 53, in May of last year, illustrates her allegation of age discrimination.Want the whole story?

first_imgFILE – In this Oct. 4, 2015, file photo, Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (10) warms up before an NFL football game against the Philadelphia Eagles in Landover, Md. (AP Photo/Patrick Semansky, File) CLEVELAND (AP) — Robert Griffin III is getting a chance to revive a career that once seemed unstoppable.One of the NFL’s brightest and flashiest stars just a few years ago, Griffin signed a two-year contract Thursday with the Cleveland Browns, a franchise on a perpetual mission to find a quarterback. Financial terms were not immediately available.Griffin hasn’t been the same since his dazzling rookie season in Washington in 2012, when RG3 — possessed with a rocket arm, a tailback’s speed and endless swagger — burst onto pro football’s stage. The Browns, who tried to trade up and select Griffin four years ago, believe he can still lead on and off the field and they’re giving him a chance to revive his career and win their starting job.“I’m just excited to come in and compete,” Griffin said. “Nothing’s ever been given to me in my life, so I just want to go out and compete with the guys and grow with this team. I feel like that’s all I’m really focused on. I cherish the opportunity to get another chance to play this beautiful game.”Griffin met last week with new Browns coach Hue Jackson, who was impressed by the 26-year-old’s candor and eagerness to begin anew.“He brings starting experience to our team and organization,” Jackson said. “He’s a young, athletic, talented passer and he’s really just starting out in this league. Just like every player on our team, Robert will have to earn every opportunity he gets. He will compete with the rest of the quarterbacks on our roster and he helps improve our QB room, which was one of my goals upon taking the job.”Cleveland has started 24 quarterbacks since 1999 and the team is expected to take one with the No. 2 overall pick in this year’s draft. That rookie — possibly California’s Jared Goff or North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz — will compete with Griffin, the second selection in 2012. Jackson and other members of the Browns attended Wentz’s pro day Thursday in North Dakota.The Browns recently released troubled quarterback Johnny Manziel, who they once thought would solve their problems. They also have quarterbacks Josh McCown and Austin Davis on their roster, but as is always the case with that position in Cleveland, nothing stands still.After winning the Heisman Trophy at Baylor, Griffin was taken in the draft just after Andrew Luck was plucked by the Indianapolis Colts. The Browns attempted to swing a deal to move up and get him but were outbid by the Redskins.Griffin took the nation’s capital by storm. He led the Redskins to the NFC East title and was named the league’s top offensive rookie. It didn’t take him long to become one of American’s most celebrated athletes and there seemed no limit to what he could accomplish. Griffin, however, sustained a significant right knee injury in a playoff game against Seattle and things would never be the same.The indelible image of Griffin lying face down on the turf is one that will haunt Redskins fans for years. In a way, it symbolized what might have been.Griffin underwent reconstructive surgery, but there was little he could do to fix a fractured relationship with then-Washington coach Mike Shanahan. Griffin wound up being benched at the end of his second season, and he missed a big chunk in his third year after dislocating his ankle.Last year, coach Jay Gruden named Griffin his starter during preseason, but then came a concussion. Griffin lost his job and spent the season behind Kirk Cousins. He was eventually demoted to third-string behind Colt McCoy.When the Redskins placed the nonexclusive franchise tag on Cousins last month for $20 million, Griffin, who went 14-21 with 40 touchdown passes as a starter, was let go with little fanfare.In search of a team, he and the Browns will try to restore each other.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLLike us at https://www.facebook.com/pages/New-Pittsburgh-Courier/143866755628836?ref=hlFollow @NewPghCourier on Twitter  https://twitter.com/NewPghCourierDownload our mobile app at http://www.appshopper.com/news/new-pittsburgh-courier,CLEVELAND (AP) — Robert Griffin III is getting a chance to revive a career that once seemed unstoppable.One of the NFL’s brightest and flashiest stars just a few years ago, Griffin signed a two-year contract Thursday with the Cleveland Browns, a franchise on a perpetual mission to find a quarterback.

first_imgThe Heat held a quick 2-0 lead against the third-place Bears before Alberta scored four times in 23 minutes to take control of the game, leading 4-2 at halftime.Stinson, working on a degree in Human Kinetics after transferring to UBCO following three seasons at U of C, assisted on a goal by Maddy Laranjo to give the Heat the two-goal advantage.“(Andrea) adds some experience to an otherwise fairly young squad,” Smith said.“Stinny plays in the heart of our midfield and brings a sense of energy and composure to our game model.”Wheeler, in her fourth year of a Arts Major, played with Stinson on Nelson Youth Soccer Rep teams as well as Kootenay Regional squads.“In addition to defending, Brittany provides consistent and accurate delivery of the ball to our attacking players when we are playing out of the back or attacking the goal,” Smith explained.Stinson and Wheeler are just a few Nelson Youth Soccer girls playing at the varsity level.At the University of Lethridge, three players are currently on the roster — defender Erica Augsten, forward Naomi Perkins and midfielder Tara Yowek.Lethbridge, 3-7-2 in the East Division of Canada West CIS, travels to BC to face Trinity Western and University of Fraser Valley.UBCO concludes the CIS regular season at home this weekend, hosing University of Saskatchewan Saturday and Regina Sunday.Both games are at Nonis Sports Field on the campus of UBCO.”Andrea Stinson and Brittany Wheeler are both key pieces to our 2016 Canada West Squad and are both incredible young women to work with,” the UBCO coaching staff said. Two Nelson Youth Soccer graduates have found their way back to their home province to play out their university careers.Brittany Wheeler and Andrea Stinson, teammates throughout youth soccer campaigns, landed on the roster of the University of Okanagan Heat after spending the early part of their respective CIS Women’s Soccer careers in Alberta.The two players transfered to UBCO after spending the early part of their university careers playing in Alberta — Stinson at the University of Calgary and Wheeler with University of Lethbridge.“It was identified in our first few days with the program that Andrea (Stinson) had a ton to offer and was without hesitation was brought on to help captain our team leading into the 2016 CIS season,” the Heat coaching staff said of the diminutive, but incredibly fast Stinson.As for Wheeler, a solid defender throughout her soccer career, the UBCO staff was happy to find an experienced player to solidify the Heat back line.“Brittany brings incredible spirit, heart and integrity to our program,” interim UBCO coach Craig Smith added when asked about 5’2″ Wheeler.“As a wide defender Britt continually stops the oppositions top attacking players with her dominating 1v1 defending ability.”The Heat, coming off a 5-2 loss Friday in Edmonton against the University of Alberta Bears and a 1-1 tie Sunday at home versus University of Northern BC Timberwolves, sit sixth in the West Division of the CIS with a 4-7-1 record as the season enters its final week of regular season play.last_img read more

first_img“We looked at a number of countries for our build-up for the Africa Cup of Nations and Kenya proved to be the most convenient since they are en route our way home from Poland.“I believe Kenya will give us a good game and after, will have a better idea of the players to use in the preparations for the Nations Cup,” Ingesund who will be in his second game in charge of Bafana after taking over from Pitso Mosimane in June said.He took his side through their final training session on Monday morning and with the visitors worried about the bumpy surface at Nyayo Stadium where the two teams are set to clash on Tuesday evening beginning at 7pm local time (+3GMT).The Kenya Defense Force will hold their open day at the same venue ahead of the game raising further concerns about the pitch with the capital experiencing heavy rains in recent days.South Africa Premier Soccer League, Orlando Pirates keeper, Moeneeb Josephs was an injury concern during the session after appearing to sprain his ankle forcing him off most of the training.“The pitch has holes and Josephs stepped on one and we shall raise the issue with the federation so that we can have them covered with sand since it is important for us and the Kenyans as well to protect the players since they can also injure themselves.“We are not here to complain about the facilities and I must have players with the character to play in such conditions if we are to win the Nations Cup,” the coach who will make a number of changes to the team that lost narrowly in Warsaw added.Ingesund stressed his side was not under pressure to post their third victory over Stars since the main objective remained making an impression on their second home AFCON.“I did not come here to beat anyone, I came here to prepare for the Nations Cup and I would rather lose all these matches and win the trophy.“The pressure is on Kenya to match my team on the pitch when we play.”For the second game, Ingesund will be missing the services of English Premiership Everton FC midfield player, Stephen Pienaar who retired from international football after ten years with the side.“It is a blow to lose such players as Pienaar but we have to accept his decision and move on. We respect him for the good ten years he has given us,” he proclaimed.“At the moment, we do not have a team and after this game, we shall now start developing the players we have identified since I will have tested the team I selected for the two games,” Ingesund proclaimed.His new captain, Bongeni Khumalo, was upbeat about the prospects of following in the footsteps of Neil Tovey and lift the continental crown on home soil.“We have a strong tradition as a team and hopefully in January, we can achieve the aim we have set ourselves. I’m not under pressure to perform as a captain since it is a honour to lead the team,” the Greek side PAOK defender who is on loan for EPL side Tottenham Hotspur declared.The South Africans admitted they knew little about their opponents hence their desire to concentrate on playing their own football on Tuesday.“They have a new coach who will no doubt have changed the way his side plays. I have only watched them play on DVD and I don’t know much about them or the country’s league,” coach Ingesund noted.Teko Modise (Mamelodi Sundowns), Siphiwe Tshabalala (Kaizer Chiefs), Itumeleng Khune (Kaizer Chiefs) and Siyabonga Sangweni (Orlando Pirates) were among the 2010 World Cup Bafana squad that trained on Monday and are expected to start.South Africa have won on both two previous meetings with Stars on their home soil in 1996 (1-0) and last year (2-0) while Kenya have not lost at Nyayo since March 2009 when they went down 2-1 to Tunisia.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000NAIROBI, Kenya, September 15- Kenya take on South Africa on Tuesday evening with Bafana Bafana coach, Gordon Ingesund using the international friendly as a test for his players to stake their claim on his 2013 Africa Cup of Nations squad.Having lost 1-0 to Poland on Friday, coach Ingesund who hopes to emulate Clive Barker and lead the boys to their first Nations Cup win since 1996 when they last hosted the continental showpiece, aspires to have identified his core players for the continental showpiece after the Nairobi tie.last_img read more

first_imgAt or around 5:41 pm, on April 9th, 2017, the Cherokee County 911 Dispatch Center received a call in reference to a disturbance at 209 Beal Circle. The reporting party had advised that the male, Mr. Nelson, had been swinging a sword at her and advised that if any law enforcement showed up at the residence that Mr. Nelson would shoot them. Upon the arrival of law enforcement from the Murphy Police Department and the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, they were advised that Mr. Nelson had barricaded himself inside with other occupants of the residence.Shortly thereafter, the occupants of the residence were released and were able to come outside. During this time, multiple attempts were made by law enforcement and Mr. Nelson’s mother to come outside of the residence via mobile phone and a patrol vehicle PA System, but Mr. Nelson refused. After much persuasion,  Mr. Nelson was able to put the makeshift firearm down and exit the residence as he was making various threats to the assisting law enforcement officers. Mr. Nelson was then taken into custody as he was resisting being placed in handcuffs and placed inside of the patrol vehicle.Mr. Nelson had made various threats to officers of the Murphy Police Department while being arrested and taken into custody. Given our previous history with Mr. Nelson, we found these threats to be credible.Cherokee Tribal Police SWAT was notified of the incident and placed on standby. They were later cancelled after the defendant was in custody.Mr. Nelson is currently incarcerated in the Cherokee County Detention Center on the following charges:– Second Degree Kidnapping (2 Counts)– Resisting Public Officer (2 Counts)– Communicating Threats (3 Counts)– Injury To Personal Property (1 Count)– Go Armed To The Terror Of The Public (1 Count)– Assault With A Deadly Weapon (1 Count)Mr. Nelson was given a $40,000.00 secure bond for the listed above offenses. His first court appearance is scheduled for April 25th, 2017 at 9:00 am in the Cherokee County Courthouse.last_img read more
