M11 extension plan through Fenland has “quietly died” according to one councillor
Plans to extend the M11 north of Cambridge through the fens have “quietly died” due to lack of funding according to a senior combined authority board member.
Coun Lewis Herbert, leader of Cambridge City Council, who sits on the board of the combined authority, said some projects, including the extension of the M11, were no longer being considered as priorities by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority.
The authority initially set aside £1.25 million for its work on the M11, and still says it is an important “long-term” project for the region. The plan had been for the motorway to be extended north from Cambridge to Peterborough, providing a better link between the two cities.
