The Highways Officer reported that a revised costing for this work had now been received in the sum of £12,000, which was much lower than the previous estimate of £21,000. In this regard it was noted that determination of this project would be undertaken by the Chair and Vice Chair of the Sub-Committee – as previously stated at Minute 3 of the Sub-Committee’s meeting on 4th July 2018.
