FRANCE: Transport Minister Frédéric Cuvillier announced on November 14 that RFF is to undertake studies for a new line between Paris and Rouen, with the aim of improving conventional services between the capital and the regions of Basse-Normandie and Haute-Normandie.The project is to be undertaken in two phases. The first is to concentrate on the three ‘priority’ areas of Paris – Mantes-la-Jolie, Mantes – Evreux and around Rouen, where studies will consider a new rail crossing of the River Seine. Broad route corridors will be selected at the end of 2016, with the aim of defining the alignment of the new line for consideration by a public inquiry prior to seeking legal powers. The steering committee overseeing the studies will include representatives of regional and local authorities, as well as the cities of Paris, Rouen, Le Havre, Caen and Cherbourg. With ‘chronic’ delays highlighting the fact that the existing route had reached its saturation point, Cuvillier said that the new line ‘will provide a real time saving for passengers’. He also stressed the improved reliability and other benefits that the project would provide for ‘everyday’ services in the regions concerned.
SOUTHAMPTON, England (CMC):Speedsters Shannon Gabriel and Alzarri Joseph rocked England in the final session with fiery spells as the hosts collapsed spectacularly losing five wickets for 30 runs in a nightmare 75-ball period, to leave West Indies with an excellent chance of winning the opening Test.Cruising at 249 for three late on the penultimate day with Zak Crawley and captain Ben Stokes well entrenched, England suddenly lost their way in the face of Gabriel and Joseph’s hostility, and limped to the close on 284 for eight – a lead of 170 runs heading into today’s pivotal final day at the Ageas Bowl.Gabriel finished with three for 62, while Joseph claimed two for 40 to rescue a day, which seemed headed England’s way from the outset.Part-time off-spinner Roston Chase had earlier taken two for 71, his wickets coming in the first and second sessions respectively.Zak Crawley, in only his fifth Test, top-scored with a career-best 76, while opener Dom Sibley chipped in with exactly 50 – his second half-century in his seventh Test.For the second time in the match, Stokes got a start but failed to carry on when he perished for 46, while opener Rory Burns hit 42 in a 72-run opening stand with Sibley, which got England away to an excellent start once they resumed on 15 without loss.Having won the first session to be 79 for one at lunch and also dominated the second to be 168 for three at tea, England seemed poised to bat West Indies out of the game in the final session, especially with Crawley and Stokes taking control. The 22-year-old Crawley, unbeaten on 38 at tea, struck eight fours off 127 balls while the left-handed Stokes, yet to score at the final interval, faced 79 deliveries and blasted six fours.Boundaries flowed at the start of the final session, Crawley punching Chase to the ropes at cover to move into the 40s before collecting two more fours through point in the bowler’s next over – the first a cut and the second a reverse sweep – to bring up his second Test fifty. BOWLING INEFFECTIVE Chase, bowling in tandem with part-time off-spinner Kraigg Brathwaite, proved ineffective and even when Gabriel and the wicket-less Kemar Roach were handed the second new ball after 11 overs, there was no immediate success for West Indies.But captain Jason Holder quickly rung the changes, introducing himself for Gabriel and struck in his second over, removing Stokes to a catch by Shai Hope at the first of two gullies, the left-hander sparring at a widish ball that lifted.Stokes’ dismissal opened the floodgates for West Indies and the tide of the game shifted. In the following over, Crawley chipped a return catch to Joseph and Jos Buttler perished four overs later, bowled off the inside edge to Joseph for nine after being reprieved by DRS in the previous over when he was adjudged lbw to Holder.With England reeling on 265 for six and just under half-hour left in the day, Holder summoned Gabriel again and he provided two key strikes in the second over of his new spell.

Wa All Stars on Sunday made sure they convinced their numerous supporters that they have come to stay in the Premiership and to be among the top clubs in Ghana’s football cycles when they added visiting Kessben from Kumasi to their defeat list and pipped them by a lone goal in their One touch Premier League march played at the Wa Sports Stadium.The Wa lads who were determined to carry the day, started the game on a fast note with accurate passes but were held at bay with any threatening move into the Kessben’s goal area.Centre forward Daniel Bonfah and outside left Issah Salifu who benefited from most of the chances that the homesters created, however, wasted all of them to the chagrin of the partisan supporters.The strikers either shot feebly and straight into the hands of keeper Mohammed Alhassan of Kessben or misdirected the ball outside the goal posts.Back from the recess, the home team raised the tempo of the game and succeeded in scoring the only goal of the march in the 59th minute during a goal-mouth melee in the area of Kessben.All Stars attacker Adusei Opoku who profited from the confusion, ensured he kicked the ball into the net, which was considered to have crossed the goal line before an attacker of Kessben cleared it out of danger. Referee Thomas Nunoo from Accra who was right on the spot whistled for a goal but players of Kessben protested against the goal, saying the ball never crossed the goal line before it was cleared.The confusion brought proceedings to a halt for about 15 minutes before understanding prevailed for the game to resume.Kessben from thereon took up the challenge and started to outwit the All Stars lads with long and accurate passes with Mpong and Douglas Nkrumah using the wings effectively but good work from stalwart defender, Godfred Yeboah thwarted their efforts at goal to bring the exciting game to an end.Source: GNA
