Hundreds of people are expected to attend the MacMillan Walk Across the Bridge event this coming Sunday which will mark the imminent arrival of the opening of the long-awaited Ely Southern Bypass.
The event has been organised by Lady Ava Paice and is available for anyone to attend between 9 am and 12 noon.
Arrangements have been made for people to enter the bypass from the Stuntney side and will walk up to the middle of the bridge from where the viewing station will eventually be and then walk back. Buckets will be available for anyone to place donations of cash, all of which will go to MacMillan.
Children are invited to attend but the numbers of people expected are going to be high so caution getting to the site of entry is required.
Organisers are suggesting, anyone living in Ely should walk to the bypass as parking will be restricted. If the weather is good then parking will happen on the Amherst Playing Field between the station and the bypass, however, in case of bad weather, parking will be at the Kings School with a shuttle service in place to ferry participants to and from the bypass.
Stewards have been arranged to help people get to and from the site safely and to assist with parking.
