Dear Ms Booth

Apologies for the delay with this FOI.


Despite the FOI concerning Plimsoll bridge the information was not held by
our Bridges team and was provided by BCC Transport Planning.  Please see
the attached document and the text below to answer your enquiry.


The Plimsoll Bridge cost of £40m was based on an initial engineering
estimate of £27m which was increased to account for contingency and
optimism bias to an estimate of £40m. The working behind this was checked
recently as per treasury guidance and confirmed to be within a range of
£37.5m to £43m. The attached details the works and the process. These are
all essential works.


Yours sincerely
