    • Thanks, when I have the time I’ll scan in some more of this contract, the most interesting bit IMHO is near the end where Colas can charge 4.5% more than the agreed schedule of rates and the same percentage extra for subcontracted work, which will equate to a saving of £360,000 if the work from this contract is brought in house.
