The Mersey Gateway (new Runcorn Bridge to you and me)

The new timetable:
Nov 2007 - results of consultation published.
Early 2008 - submission of planning application.
Summer 2008 - Halton BC to give formal response to planning application.
Winter 2008 - Likely public enquiry.
Late 2009 - Results of public enquiry.
2011 - Building work starts.
2014 - Mersey Gateway opens (closely followed by toll booths).
All looks very simple and straight forward. I wonder what odds you could get on it opening in 2014 (and on budget).
