A14 tolling nightmare for East Cambs villages

by Gareth Wilson on 31 July, 2013

Proposals for tolling part of the A14 could lead to traffic short-cutting through villages across East Cambridgeshire, a local Lib Dems have warned

Cllr Gareth Wilson said: “If tolling is introduced on the A14, traffic including many heavy vehicles may short-cut through Ely and villages like Wicken, Stretham, Wilburton, Haddenham and Sutton. Turners of Soham already appear to be indicating that they wouldn’t use a toll road.

“With East Cambridgeshire Conservatives promising to commit £1 million of taxpayers’ money towards the A14 upgrade that will include this toll, it seems residents in the affected villages will be asked to contribute financially  towards this threat to their communities.”
