In their most recent report, covering October to December 2018, Tideway report that construction is on track. The tunnel will be operational by 2023.</p><p> </p><p>Tideway issued a press release on 4 April which outlines recent progress and updates their latest cost estimate. Their revised estimate is £3.361 billion (in 2014/15 prices), which is an increase of £217m on the £3.144 billion baseline set at the start of the project. Tideway estimates that it does not change the estimated £20-25 peak annual cost for Thames Water customers (in 2014/15 prices), as overall costs remain within that range. This level of increase has no impact on the taxpayer.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>The Import of Products, Animals, Food and Feed System has been designed, for a scenario where the UK no longer has access to the Trade Control and Expert System (TRACES), to enable notifications of imports coming into this country, so that appropriate border controls can be carried out and recorded. The notifications reveal the origin of the consignments just as TRACES does now and so can be used to trace a consignment back to its country of origin. It does not itself provide for traceability of movements afterwards, however, once in the UK, horses and other equines must be identified in accordance with UK law and recorded on the UK Central Equine Database (CED). This records the identification details of the equine, including the name and address of the owner. An exception is made for equines from other EU Member States that are only in the UK for a short stay for specific purposes such as competition, racing or breeding, on the basis that they are already fully identified in accordance with EU law. This will include a record having been made in the CED of their Member State of origin.</p><p> </p>
