Troubled cable company Telewest says its engineering arm is going to bear most of the brunt of its 1,500 job cuts.
The company has added that its consumer and business divisions will also be merged in a bid to save cash.
But at this point the company is not clear about where the cuts are going to be made.
Chief executive Adam Singer said no geographical breakdown of the job losses can be given. Most of the cuts are going to be through voluntary redundancy and Singer hoped to keep compulsory redundancies to "an absolute minimum".
More than 500 jobs have already gone through natural turnover at the group, which has its main offices in Woking, Birmingham, Edinburgh and London.
Finance director Charles Burdick says the cable TV, phone and internet group has enough cash to survive for 15 months. He claims the company is in a better position than its rival NTL, which filed for Chapter 11 protection yesterday.
Burdick said: "We have good medium-term liquidity and we have options, and that is an important difference."
Results for the first quarter showed underlying earnings at Telewest up 34 per cent at £91m.
Total turnover edged up 4 per cent to £334m, with revenues in the consumer arm up 11 per cent at £227m.
