The contractual wrangling over the construction of FibreSpeed, the £30 million broadband network linking Wales with England, looks closer to being brought to an end.

FibreSpeed greatly improved the communications enjoyed by businesses in the north of the Principality with its cabling as far as Greater Manchester.

However, on completion some of the sub-contractors which had been involved in the project claimed they were still owed thousands of pounds.

A statement from main contractor North Midland Construction (NMC), published in Contract Journal read: "We are currently working to resolve the alleged non-payment of subcontractors within the supply chain and have held a meeting with those involved.

"The aim of the meeting was to determine how much is owed by NMC's subcontractors to other parties in the supply chain and how the dispute can be resolved."

Manchester-based United Formwork was one of the companies alleged to owe money to sub-contractors.
