Controversial link road now costs £100 million more than original estimates

theargus : "Green party activist Andrew Durling said the scheme was calculated by the Department for Transport in 2011 as the worst "value for money" road scheme as well as the worst for CO2 emissions.

Mr Durling, who said local taxpayers would have to foot £68.3 million of costs with the rest coming from central government, added: “East Sussex County Council has squandered, and continues to squander, huge sums of council taxpayers money on just three miles of new road at a time when it is making nearly £40 million of cuts to adult social care services."
