Contrasting stories in the Peterborough Telegraph:
1. Contract awarded for £17 million Kings Dyke level crossing - this involves a new road bridge, two roundabouts, approx 800m of road plus street lighting, fencing etc.
2. The Rhubarb bridge - the proposed new crossings have (sensibly) been put on hold, but according to Peterborough City Council a new footbridge would cost £20 million.
Why should it cost more than a far more complicated road scheme?
Who’s come up with the figures?
Perhaps Peterborough City Council should speak to Cambridgeshire County Council about the costs.
