The government today (July 18th) announced plans to transform the A14 in Cambridgeshire.
Included in the proposals are plans to toll a 20-mile length stretch of the road in order to help fund other measures. However, no decisions have yet been taken on how much the tariff would be and what method of payment would be used.
These include plans to construct a new bypass to replace the current road around Huntingdon and upgrades along the length of the route as far east as Milton.
"My department has been working hard to generate innovative and imaginative solutions to tackling long term congestion and I am pleased to be able to unveil what we believe to be the best option for people living locally," said transport secretary Justine Greening.
The project will now enter the Department for Transport's road programme and undergo various statutory processes before construction could potentially begin in 2018.
