Work has now started on the Runnymede Roundabout in Egham situated at the junction of the A30, Egham By-pass, A308 the Causeway and next to the junction 13 of the M25 Egham.

 

As you can imagine this is one of the busiest junctions in Surrey.

 

Work began on improving this junction for vehicle, pedestrian and cyclists at the beginning of July 2017.

Before South Western Railway took over the franchise, they had been preparing for a major timetable change in December 2018 to provide customers with access to additional services and extra capacity throughout the day.

They are therefore disappointed that they will not be implementing any changes to the December 2018 timetable and instead rolling over the May 2018 timetable. Preparations to deliver the extra services, capacity improvements and reduced journey times started well before the take over of the SWR franchise and will continue as they are determined to deliver what our customers and stakeholders expect.

Mindful of the disruption to customers that happened with other major timetable changes elsewhere in May 2018 and despite SWR’s desire to deliver the increased capacity and extra services as soon as possible to customers, it has been decided at a national level that a period of stability is needed.

Are you an innovative British business and thinking about building a new market in China?

 

China is a potential export and licensing market for UK businesses, and also as a partner for manufacturing, investment, innovation and creative collaborations. There are significant opportunities on offer for British companies in a range of technology sectors.

 

Intellectual property (IP) in China is never far from the headlines. Some praise the development of China’s IP system and highlight the latest enforcement success. Others complain of forced technology transfer and infringement.

 

Getting IP right is crucial if UK companies are to succeed in China. Tom Duke – the UK’s IP Attaché to China, based in the British Embassy Beijing – supports over 250 companies each year from across the UK. This includes advising British companies and their boards on risk mitigation strategies ahead of China projects, and helping resolve disputes after they arise

 

Tom will cover:

  •  

  • The main IP risks of doing business in China, and how can this affects exporting, manufacturing, investment, joint research and other projects

  •  

  • Know before you go: Practical steps to mitigate IP risk, including IP registrations, China contract best-practice and structuring relationships with Chinese partners

  •  

  • Protecting IP in the tech sector, including focus on software, the implications of Chinese data regulations on IP risks, and cross-border licensing best practice.

  •  

  • Don’t panic! What do if things go wrong
