No to Moto

Say 'No' to Duxford Motorway Services



The motorway services provider, Moto, are proposing a large 24 hr service station close to Junction 10 of the M11 near Duxford village.  The proposals, which have been shared with some local parish councils, include access possibly planned via the hugely congested Hunts Road roundabout on the A505 rather than directly off the M11.  

Whatever the access point, the site would add to noise, light and air pollution in the area.  It also sits under the flight path and close to the runway of the airport at the Imperial War Museum.  The local area neither need nor want this blot on our local landscape.

Peter McDonald and the local Lib Dem team will continue to fight against this proposal.  If you feel as strongly as us, please sign this petition.

We call upon Moto Services to withdraw their plans for a motorway service station near J10 of the M11.

    Sounds like a great idea – jobs, business and a useful service to ordinary folks on their travels. And free enterprise too – just the thing that traditional Liberals like. And our draconian planning laws mean that we can make them improve road access to the site, and keep a clear approach path to Duxford. What’s not to like?

    A505 is already hugely congested. Very difficult for Whittlesford residents to access A505 from Hill Farm Rd, especially if wanting to double back at Hunt Rd round about to access M11.

    Wholly unneeded and undesirable development. There are 3 petrol stations and 1 motel close to the proposed location. Development would lead to increased traffic on an already congested road, increased noise/light/air pollution and loss of arable land.

    I don’t think this area will benefit from the congestion and pollution of a Moto service station. Is a Cambridge college originally behind this proposal?

    Peter Topping (Conservative) reported “the objections that caused the rejection of the year 2000 proposal are no longer relevant, as there is now no requirement to demonstrate need; market forces alone will decide.” []

    I’m unclear if Peter Topping is on our side. Aren’t ‘market forces alone’ what the Conservatives believe in and champion?

    What will you do with the responses to this petition? Will you keep me updated as to any developments?

    The current weight of traffic is excessive getting from Royston to M11 or A11 already. This facility will add further congestion. The motorway is adequately serviced by A location a few miles north and a facility at the next junction southbound. Refuelling is already achievable at j10 via a selection of stations a couple minutes in either direction off the roundabout. Consider also the additional mayhem created during airshow days at Duxford IWM, it would make local travel a misery for those living in the surrounding villages. A firm NO.

    How very silly this is and it crops up from time to time. Imagine an Air Display at the Imperial War Museum – supposing, just supposing, one of the elderly aircraft develops a fault and crash lands. Not hard to imagine the carnage that would cause if it comes down on a Service station – full, especially on a Bank Holiday air display, with hundreds of people in that area. It is plain common sense to say a resounding NO to this proposal.

    It is ridicules to even think about putting this totally unneeded service station in this location. the authority must give this the thumbs down on so many reasons apart from the huge traffic hold ups 0n the A505 . This is an absolutely stupid proposal

    I support this. It will create jobs and the access off the A505 roundabout is ideal.

    Traffic is too bad right now as it is but if there’s a KFC involved then I would like to withdraw my signature.

    There does not, NOT, need to be a service station, there is a petrol station 5-10 minutes in either direction, and a service station just 10 miles further towards the north. It is not needed
