In a statement the Department of Transport said:

"We have made no decisions yet on how the toll will work, or on its level. Cambridgeshire County Council are participating in this work. We recognise there is a great deal of local knowledge in the local authorities, which we will wish to make proper use of when progressing the scheme design."
