w104---The money is already running out..... again

Resource Description: 

For years prominent critics of the tram project have warned that the costs could one day reach £1 Billion for what is a fragment of the original project left on the table.

 

A story today shows these warnings are not  the scaremongering that they were dismissed as being by the council's  but predictions from people with experience of large transport and civil engineering projects that are proving to be more accurate than the council's own optimistic predictions.  Hardly surprising given the history of Council predictions across the whole life of the project.
