The government has announced a 1.5 billion pound investment for one of the busiest roads in the region - but drivers will have to pay to use it. The new A14 toll road in Cambridgeshire was given the green light today, with work starting in 2016, two years earlier than planned.
The government said the road would unlock "jobs, housing and growth" in the region. In today's infrastructure announcement, the A14 was the biggest winner in our region. But also going ahead are the A5 / M1 link road and a new Thames crossing in Essex.
There's investment too for science and business in Cambridgeshire. Cambridge will also get investment in broadband and wireless technology. And in education, 15 schools in a poor condition in the region will be rebuilt. Matthew Hudson reports.
