According to the news the rail-link between Wisbech and March is now priced at £75million.

So in a matter of weeks it has increased from £50 million as previously reported.

By my simple mathematical brain that is an increase of 50 per cent.

And we are talking in the millions here.

I know let’s get Norfolk County Council in to oversee the project, after all they’ve only chucked away £30 million on their now to not happen incinerator scheme. Let them oversee the Wisbech-March rail scheme and we’ll save £45 million - job done!
