RE: Widening of Fletton Parkway finishes £6 million over budget after Peterborough City Council hit with second large bill - what a farce... they must have as is drawings etc of existing ducts and drainage pipes. Why is this then not foreseen
That’s £100 extra for every household in Peterborough
Added to the millions wasted over wind farms, it looks like our cash strapped council is awash with money when needed. One wonders if councillors are so blasé with their own money? £730k extra on design changes, who passed the original plans?
Had the issue been identified in advance would it have still been extra £6m? If so would the project still gone ahead?
It’s a shame that this sort of ‘extra’ funding can’t be found for pedestrian and cycling schemes
