THE further delays notified in The Hunts Post create doubt in anything the county council or the contractors say about completion of the above. Delay is followed by delay and excuse follows excuse.

On their past record we will be lucky to have this up and running by the end of 2010. The completion is already six months behind the scheduled date.

When will the local authorities and contractors be held responsible, financially, for these unacceptable delays?
