HISTON ROAD – BUS PRIORITY

The current forecast shows that there is likely to be an underspend of £80k in 2017/18. The latest forecast takes into account the latest fee proposal from the consultants which includes all work required to achieve a final concept design.

 MILTON ROAD – BUS PRIORITY

The current forecast shows that there is likely to be an underspend of £460k in 2017/18.  This is due to the extensive Local Liaison Forum (LLF) engagement process which has resulted in further rounds of modelling and design. The latest forecast takes into account the latest fee proposal from the consultants which includes all work required to achieve a final preferred option design.

CHISHOLM TRAIL

The planning application for Phase One between Cambridge North station and Coldhams Lane has been approved by the JDCC (Joint Development Control Committee), and there are extensive pre-commencement planning conditions to be discharged. The planning process took longer than expected, and based on the current 2017/18 budget, there is likely to be an underspend of £1.2m which would carry into 2018/19.

CHISHOLM TRAIL LINK – PHASE 2

The completion date for Phase 2 has moved from 2021 to 2022. This is due to a longer than anticipated planning and planning condition discharge period in Phase 1, and has required additional staff and consultant resources.

CAMBOURNE TO CAMBRIDGE / A428 CORRIDOR

Given the current range of business case activities being undertaken and the need to ensure that maximum information is available for the Board decision paper on the preferred option in July 2018, it is considered prudent to increase the projected spend by £100k to account for any further additional analysis which may be required.

PROGRAMME MANAGEMENT & EARLY SCHEME DEVELOPMENT

£1.75m of this budget has been allocated to pay for GCP’s contribution to the development phase of Cambridge South station and the budget has been reduced accordingly.

CAMBRIDGE SOUTH EAST TRANSPORT STUDY (FORMERLY A1307)

Forecast revised spend to reflect additional engagement work and time required to deliver preliminary proposals.

CROSS-CITY CYCLE IMPROVEMENTS

The current forecast shows that there is likely to be a shortfall of £737k in spend. Construction work has commenced on three out of the five projects. Some additional design work to address road safety audit issues and the transition to a new highway services contract have resulted in a delay in the delivery of some of the schemes, and hence a reduced spend profile in 2017/18. This delayed spend is instead expected in 2018/19.

WESTERN ORBITAL

Spend is currently on track as projected. It has now been agreed that a full application be undertaken for expansion of the Trumpington P&R site which will not impact the spend projections.

ELY TO CAMBRIDGE TRANSPORT STUDY

Expenditure for the study was expected to be c£780k. The final fee was c£550k so a project saving of £130k has been made.

A10 CYCLE ROUTE (SHEPRETH TO MELBOURN)

This project is complete and final costs remain on target.

CITY ACCESS PROJECT

The current forecast shows that the 2017/2018 budget will come in broadly on target as work is progressing across a number of workstreams.

GREENWAYS DEVELOPMENT

The forecast is on target to meet the 2017/18 budget.
