IF you approve of the new traffic signals at Spittals interchange on the A14, a local charity could be £500 better off.

But it is up to Hunts Post readers to determine whether John Bridge, a former local haulier, who lives in Great Stukeley, parts with the money.

Mr Bridge, who is chief executive of the Huntingdonshire Chamber of Commerce - and of the Cambridgeshire chambers - and who sits on a committee of experts advising the Highways Agency on short-term improvements to the A14, laid down the challenge because he believed the lights would make congestion worse.

A poll by BBC Radio Cambridgeshire found listeners three-to-one in favour of the new traffic management arrangements, but Mr Bridge prefers to trust the judgment of Hunts Post readers.

He has told us which charity he has chosen to benefit, if you judge that the new traffic lights have improved your journeys.
