Drivers using the new A14 toll road are expected to pay £8m a year, a Freedom of Information request has revealed. 

The Hunts Post reports:

EIGHT million pounds a year is expected to be generated by motorists paying tolls on a new A14.

The figure was revealed following a Freedom of Information request to discover what the under secretary of state for transport Stephen Hammond told Cambridgeshire County Council at a meeting in January and what decisions were being made at other meetings about the A14 scheme.

The documents state that Mr Hammond told CCC he was working with cabinet office minister Oliver Letwin’s office to speed up the development and hoped to announce details in September.
