The final cost of the much-derided King Street crossing in Sudbury was nearly £90,000 – almost £25,000 more than originally thought.

Freedom of Information figures seen by the Free Press show the work came in at £88,687. This included £82,453 on construction costs and £6,234 on staff.

Since the crossing was completed in June 2012, many people have been critical of the concrete hump and the reported £65,000 which was spent on it.
