1.7 bn work for Balfour and McAlpine

1.7 billion investment to open the mine near Whitby. The rivalry for the mining project is between Balfour Beatty and Sir Robert McAlpine.

The idea would be to build a 37km tunnel to the potash mine and extract tons of polyhalite and other minerals. All these resources would be exported. The construction would be started at a Sneaton village.
