And finally… Construction, steel and the World Cup

Eleven cities in Russia have experienced a massive boom in construction ahead of the World Cup thanks to the decision to invest in steel-based infrastructure, according to World Steel.

An information video released by the non-for-profit organisation, which represents some of the biggest names in steel manufacture around the globe, highlights the laying on of 700 trains, and the creation of 5,500km of railway lines, for the event.

Other measures include using steel to temporarily expand seating in a number of stadiums, as well as steps to improve sustainability of the venues.
