Kings Dyke – Crossing – Bridge Update

Kier construction have been awarded the contract to built the Kings Dyke Bridge and the associated works required to complete the project, they have awarded Ramboll to design the project, (see below).
Cambs County Councillor (Whittlesey North) and chairman of the Kings Dyke project committee Cllr David Connor said….

I am very pleased to announce the contractor has been chosen, local people have been looking for a solution to the problems caused by the K.D. level crossing for a very long time and their wish to see the scheme delivered as quickly and smoothly as possible.
It will be a benefit not only to the people of Whittlesey, but further afield and for the local economy.

A 6 month design process will now start, Council officers will work closely with ‘Kier Construction’ and their design partners ‘Ramboll’ on the details of the scheme’

Another step forward – Ramboll UK are the company who helped design and delivered the ‘New’ Forth Road Bridge – opened by the H.M. The Queen yesterday….
Naturally – the Whittlesey (80+ metre bridge) is not on the same design, cost or complexity as the Forth Road Bridge….

Of course in my dreams – it would have been nice to have a bridge like this….. keep dreaming …. Roy…. like many things in my life…
