    There is still no date set for the opening of the road.

    Quote Message: It's going to be a multi-million pound claim. This road was meant to be delivered over a year ago and when I spoke a couple of months ago, I was still hopeful we would be able to open the road in April. We're still here today, it's disgraceful." from John Osman Council leader, Conservative
