The newspaper says today that the Government will now pick up the tab for the £1.5bn upgrade.

Chancellor George Osborne is expected to confirm the Government’s position in his autumn statement.

As recently as last week the prime minister David Cameron told MPs: “I believe that road tolls can play an important part in providing new road capacity, and it is important that we find ways to pay for road capacity, but I also understand the concerns about this individual case.”

  • This is great news for Cambridgeshire and Suffolk and just shows that keeping up the political pressure pays off, even with this ConDem government. Way to go, without tolls!
