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.

A10 Foxton Railway Crossing 15 September 2015

Replacement of the existing level crossing with a bridge or underpass across the railway (approximately 100m further west), with the existing level crossing being closed to traffic (except for pedestrian access).

This is a venerable project, appearing in the 1954 Cambridge County Development Plan, and probably even earlier.
