The York Council is to seeking liquidated damages for the 5 month delay in completing the park and site and associated highways works at Poppleton.
It says that the issues will be assessed during the preparation of the final accounts for the scheme which was completed using “using a standard construction contract which includes liquidated damage clauses if the works over run beyond the contract completion date”
The ongoing road works became something of a joke for residents living on the west of the city with deadline after deadline passing without completion.
The roadwork’s were temporarily lifted for the start of the Tour de France but were re-imposed shortly afterwards.
Even the Park and Ride site itself was opened 2 months before necessary landscaping work was completed.
The extent of any compensation likely to be claimed is not yet known.
Residents living near the A59 roundabout are understood to be seeking compensation from the Council for the delays and inconvenience that they suffered
