THE Expressway between Oxford and Cambridge will likely be scrapped in the budget announcement at the start of March, according to an Oxfordshire MP.
John Howell, Conservative MP for Henley, said he thought an announcement on the future of the major new road would be made on March 11 as the government set out its spending commitments for 2020/21.
Mr Howell said: “This was announced way back in the election campaign that it was being reviewed, and my understanding is that we will have an announcement in the budget.
“I am anticipating that the decision will be taken to scrap it.”
The Henley MP made similar comments in his most recent newsletter to constituents.
