A good cog?

Apropos cost overruns, it is interesting to note HERE that when Siemens hits a delay on a project in China and, elsewhere, defects on a project in Budapest it suffers a loss of €200 million, but when roads cost more in the UK the taxpayer takes the loss. Who, in the name of goodness, does the UK Roads Authority use to write its contracts?

Should we not ask our Irish ambassador in China to procure a copy of the Siemens contract and urgently check with the National Roads Authority for an assurance that their contract writer is not the same one as used by the UK Highways Agency?
