The Ely Southern Bypass is a new £49m single carriageway bypass for the south of the city. It links Angel Drove with Stutney Causeway and has a new bridge over the River Great Ouse and a new bridge over the railway.

Work started in January 2017 and it was expected to open in Summer 2018. In April 2018 it was announced that owing to delays over the winter, the opening date would be put back to October. The road finally opened on 31st October 2018.

The project was needed in order to provide a route for high vehicles to cross the busy railway line. The old road had a low bridge, which was prone to strikes next to a level crossing on a busy line, so congestion is frequent. The existing level crossing was closed with the opening of the new bypass.
