Regarding the delay on the £3.25million proposed railway crossing (Crow October 9).

This crossing is not needed in the first place as the railway is more than adequately fenced to stop illegal crossing, and this very large sum of money should be put to better use improving much-needed facilities in the town.

Have the costs of compulsory purchase and the lengthy legal hearings been allowed for in the original budget?

And what about the costs of hearings when objections are raised when planning is applied for?

It is stated that the delay of a year will not see an increase in the cost of the project.

With naïve statements like that, it's no wonder council budgets get in a mess.
