A unique opportunity to walk the length of the Ely southern bypass in aid of charity before it officially opens will take place on October 14.

The Walk the Bridge event by the Ely branch of Macmillan Cancer Support will see dozens take to the highway to preview the major project and donate to a worthy cause.

The bypass will ease congestion in and around Ely by providing a new link between Stuntney Causeway and Angel Drove.

Using only the Stuntney causeway entrance, there will be parking on Amherst playing field courtesy of Kings Ely.

There will be shuttle buses from there to the start.

Organisers have asked if possible, if people living the Ely side of the railway crossing to make their own way, as the road after the railway crossing will be stewarded.

No need to register, just come and see Ely from a different angle.
