Ely DOES need a bypass - the sooner the better!

IN response to F Dougherty’s letter on August 15, saying that Ely doesn’t need a bypass.

Last Thursday I was stuck in traffic in Station Road waiting to turn right into Angel Drove. Vehicles had blocked the roundabout.

After about 10 minutes I managed to get into Angel Drove, where there were HGVs and cars queued past the Tesco roundabout and as far as the A10 roundabout.

This happens several times a day as Ely station is a hub for trains to London, Norwich and Peterborough which means the crossing is closed for more than 20 minutes every hour.

Then of course there are the occasions when a vehicle bashes the bridge.

Bypass? Yes please. The sooner the better!
