Walkers are gearing up to trek the length of the Ely southern bypass this Sunday in aid of charity.
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 before it officially opens.
The bypass will ease congestion in and around Ely by providing a new link between Stuntney Causeway and Angel Drove.
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.
If the weather remains dry, there will be parking on King’s Ely playing field Amherst.

These buses and drivers are being provided by King’s.
