In the last six months, £920,101 (plus VAT) has been spent on traffic marshals. This figure includes use of traffic marshals to manage the movement of traffic and/or pedestrians (a) in the Palace and along the spine road, (b) in and out of the underground car park, and (c) on laundry road in the Northern Estate. The underground car park currently requires 24/7 marshal cover to support the closure of one of the ramps into the car park, so the cost also includes unsociable working hours, bank holidays and weekends.

This does not include costs where it has not been possible to extrapolate the cost of marshal provision from the overall contract for works.
