Wash Flooded – 14/11/2012

Leave a Comment

Welney Wash Road is one again flooded, costing us at least £270 per day in re-routing costs, plus £500 per day in lost labour.

 We  of  course,  must  all  look  upon  this  as  character  building  fun.


Last  week Johny from  raidio  Cambridge  was  in  the  yard  about 6:30  am.  Out  of  10  or  so  vehicles it  was  sods  law  5  projects  were  south  of  the  flooded  Welney Wash , situated  on  A1101  Wisbech to
Bury St.  Edmunds Road.


One  project  was  Granta Park, Great Abingdon  due  south. Another   two  were  were  in  middle  of  Cambridge – Jesus College  & Pembrooke  College, as well as the Skanska development at Addenbrookes Road  on the South side of Cambridge.  Also  Newmarket Road Park & Ride on the East side of Cambridge.  Normally,  without  the  road  being  flooded,  we  would  arrive  at  all  projects well  before  8 am  gaining  the advantage  of  missing  the  peak  road  congestion.

Now  the  truck  that  raidio  Cambridge  intervied  and  tracked   all  the  way  round  to  miss the flood, lost  that  advantage  and  unbelievably  did  not  make  the  Cambridge Park & Ride before  9 am with  the extra  mileage  costs  (70 miles per day) for just that one vehicle! With the  other  4  vehicles, it  was  only  £50  per vehicle.
