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.”Leave a comment
