Upcoming Roadworks in Bedford Borough

Transporting Bedford 2020- Britannia Road

Works to reduce congestion at Britannia Road, a well-known traffic hotspot, will begin on Saturday 20th July.


These works will widen the road, which will create more space for traffic, while keeping space for pedestrians; and deliver major changes to the road layout.


During the works, Britannia Road will be open one way to traffic going from Ampthill Road to Kempston Road. There will be a clearly signed diversion route for other traffic in place throughout the works, around Kingsway and St Mary’s Street.


Transporting Bedford 2020 is a multimillion pound investment covering a number of different projects in town. it is a condition of the external funding we have secured that we have to start delivering these works now, or we risk losing the money and being unable to deliver the project benefits.

Major Improvements to A6 At Wilstead

A stretch of A6 south of Bedford, past the village of Wilstead will be rebuilt this summer.


This stretch of the A6 is in serious need of rebuilding as a consequence of the foundations of the road having collapsed.


The importance of safety for road users is paramount and the road is being completely rebuilt in a multimillion-pound investment by Bedford Borough Council, with the works being carried out by Henderson & Taylor.


These works will require the road to be closed from 22nd July, with the project expected to be complete and the road re-opened by early December.


The road will be closed from the Bedford Road junction in the north to the Luton Road junction in the south, while this stretch of the A6 is removed and rebuilt. The diversion route will be clearly signed, via the A507 and A600 through Cotton End.
