Cambridgeshire County Council is continuing to work alongside the Combined Authority on the vitally important King’s Dyke crossing project.
Leader Cllr Steve Count has had several discussions with Mayor James Palmer and Cllr Chris Boden, who all share the same concerns about the length of time for this project but are all committed to finding a solution to delivering this scheme.
The King’s Dyke crossing project is still in its design phase and the County Council has today (Friday), received assurances from the contractor, Kier, that the design stage will now be completed and a revised construction quote will be received by 17 July.
The Combined Authority and Cambridgeshire County Council have been working closely together for some time now, and fully understand the need for this vitally important project and are committed to looking at the best way to deliver it, which will remove the delays at the level crossing.
Following the latest reassurance from Kier which is disappointingly over four months after the originally agreed date, the County Council will be seeking the views of the Combined Authority on how they wish to proceed with the delivery of this scheme.
