Turn the River Ouse crossing into a toll bridge
We have been talking about a by pass for decades, why do we need one?
At various points along the Rivers Severn, Clyde, Forth, Humber and Thames, to mention a few, you have to pay a toll to cross the river.
The M6 Toll Road near Birmingham is a classic example of how to stop HGV’s using a road, they avoid it like the plague, because of the toll and the road is free moving all day every day.
So, we make crossing the River Ouse at Ely a Toll bridge, provide stacking parks each side, well back from the bridge, and charge a toll, free up to 3.5 tonnes, then a charge from 3.5 tonnes to 7.5 tonnes and much more for over that.
A self financing project that will keep the heavy stuff on the A14, unless they want to pay.
