Plans to build a new A14 toll road have been published by The Highways Agency.
The chancellor is expected to set out a further £11.5 billion of cuts, while MPs in the East are hoping for some good news for our roads.
Major disruption after a bio-fuel lorry overturned on the A14 between Brampton Hut and Thrapston in Cambridgehire.
The news that the A14 will be a toll road has caused some anger amongst drivers.
Anglia News spoke to Roads Minister Stephen Hammond and asked him to respond to the suggestion that drivers would be forced to pay the toll.
Detailed plans for the new toll road on the A14 have been made public, but there are fears the charge will prompt motorists to find rat runs through nearby towns and villages.
The A14 is a vital route for commuters and freight traffic and is one of the most congested.
The Government says the answer is to build a £1.5 billion upgrade between Cambridge and Huntingdon, including a new 12-mile road toll, but not everyone is happy. Matthew Hudson reports.
A month long public consultation into the upgrading of the A14 has begun. The £1.5 billion scheme would increase capacity between Cambridge and Huntingdon.
But critics say the pay as you go toll road will hit those living locally the hardest. Matthew Hudson reports.
A month-long public consultation looking into plans to upgrade the A14 begins today.
A £1.5 billion scheme has been proposed by the Highways Agency with the aim of increasing capacity between Cambridge and Huntingdon.
The consultation is seeking feedback on the choice of route, junction and access arrangements, other options considered, the proposed tolling of the bypass around Huntington, and the way in which the tolling system could work.
Members of the public will have the opportunity to view the plans at a series of exhibitions throughout Cambridgeshire.
