been completed.

(Spacia) Limited as at 31 March 2002 was approximately £16.5 million. The net

"Following the sale of the Group's interests in the Broadgate Development, the
Board is pleased to announce the sale of Railtrack (Spacia) Limited and believes
that the Group is on track to be able to return between 245 and 255 pence per
share (subject to the qualifications set out in the circular to shareholders
dated 27 June 2002)."
