Having helped lobby for the funding for the King’s Dyke scheme – which Martin Curtis did a great job in securing when Leader of the County Council – I have shared the local frustration as technical issues have slowed progress. I continue to chase up key stakeholders and to emphasise how important this is to local residents.
The current timeline for the King’s Dyke project completion is as follows:
October 2018 – Stage 1: Detailed design complete
November 2018 – Stage 2: Construction contract award
December/ January 2018 – Commence utility diversions
February/March 2019 – Construction commences
Late 2020 – Construction complete; Scheme opens
