AMEC Civil Engineering Ltd v Secretary of State for Transport

Citation: CILL 2189 TCC

Nature of case:
This decision has attracted considerable interest because of the “seven propositions” by which the dispute/no dispute issue is to be decided for the purposes of ICE 5th Clause 66.   The “Thelwall Viaduct” case, as it is known, also concerns the scope of the engineer’s decision-making jurisdiction.  Permission was granted to appeal to the Court of Appeal (see below).  Note that the decision expressly relates adjudication cases to arbitration.
