A142 Ely Southern Bypass 13 January 2017

Single, two-lane carriageway route avoiding the frequently-struck low bridge near Ely station, one of the lowest bridges on an A road anywhere in the UK, with a maximum headroom of only 9ft (2.7 m).

Drivers of high vehicles are currently obliged to take an alternative route along Station Road, but the level crossing over which they must pass is closed for more than 30 minutes per hour on average at peak times, resulting in long queues and delays.
