Obituary
There is deep loss and emptiness at many job sites and project offices around the world and among colleagues and friends at the shock news that Enrique González of Spanish contractor Dragados has lost his life after being knocked down by a truck during a bicycle road race on Saturday 23 March near his home and close to the city of Madrid. He died at the scene of the accident. Following a funeral service on Wednesday, his body was taken by his wife and young family for burial in his hometown of Oviedo. Enrique will be missed by so many for his energy, his knowledge, his personal integrity and his professional ‘we-will-succeed’ attitude.
