THE cost of installing an imprinted walkway in Benson has risen.

Parish councillors who had agreed to spend up to £7,000 on marking the pedestrian section alongside Nos 1 to 13 Brook Street have now been told that the actual cost will be £8,500.

The new figure includes VAT, which the council hopes it will be able to claim back.

Councillor Dave Rushton said: “The walkway will be a massive step forward in trying to improve road safety along that stretch.”
